History on a Pinhead

The town is said to have been named after a horse, but there’s no one around today who can answer the burning questions of “Why?” and “Whose horse?”

When the Quanah, Acme and Pacific railroad came through Cottle County, Narcisso received a station. This was in the early years of the 1910s.

In 1919 the Swenson Land and Cattle Company donated land for a school and although it was built, it didn’t last. By 1940, the town and the horse it was named after were history.
