History in a Pecan Shell

First settled in the 1850s, early Methodist minister Isaac Hoover is the town’s namesake. The town had a combination community building/ school until a separate school was built in 1872. A post office was granted seven years later but was closed by 1881. The community’s population history is unreported, but after merging their school with the Burnet ISD, in the late 1940s the community declined. Little remains today except for the cemetery and scattered houses.
