History on a Pinhead

This “town” may have been a railroad designation, although the transportation department has placed a standard green and white signpost here. Since no history is available, it will be added to our town list in hope that someone will provide information – at least on the person whom the place is named after.

Twichell, Texas bears an uncanny resemblance to Bee County’s town of Tynan.

Photographer's Note:

Seven minutes west of Booker and six minutes east of Perryton on TX 15. I suppose Twichell is closer to a town than a ghost town. It has commerce, a few houses and a road sign. - Barclay Gibson, July 09, 2010
