History in a Pecan Shell

In the late 1880s Enos and Thomas Seeds owned the Grasslands Ranch here. The community grew around the ranch headquarters and is Lynn County’s oldest community.

The embryonic town was granted a post office in 1889 – the county’s second. The Grasslands Ranch was subdivided into farms by 1900 and the region became a cotton-based economy. The population remained small with a reported population of just 67 residents by 1930.

The town grew to 200 for the 1940 census and remained there for the next three decades. By 1980 it had declined to 61 where it has remained through 2000.
