History on a Pinhead

Former Texas Ranger Felix Grundy Morris hung up his gunbelt and badge and retired here after the Civil War. The community was granted a post office in 1886 and Morris served as one of the early postmasters, naming the community after his middle name.

By the early 1890s Grundyville had a gin, followed by a second shortly thereafter (1896). The post office closed its doors in 1918 and today only the ruins of the Grundyville Baptist Church remain to make the former town.
