History in a Pecan Shell

Like neighboring Groom, Lark was platted to meet the arrival of the Chicago, Rock Island and Gulf Railway line. The two met in 1903 and Lark was named in honor of area rancher Lark Stangler.

A post office was active from 1909 until 1915 when mail was delivered seven miles west at Conway. Reopened from 1925 to 1957, mail was then rerouted to Groom, 7 miles east.

Lark's population was a mere ten persons through the 1930s but doubled to 20 by 1940. The TxDot map of Carson County does not show Lark as having a cemetery.

Texas Escapes, in its purpose to preserve historic, endangered and vanishing Texas, asks that anyone wishing to share Lark history, stories, landmarks and recent or vintage photos, please contact us.
