History in a Pecan Shell

The town's beginning has been narrowed down to between 1900 and 1905 - the year the community built a school. Little is known about the town's early years, WWI or the Great Depression, but after WWII the population was a mere 15 people to support a school, store, gin, and a blacksmith. The school closed sometime before 1970 and in the mid-70s the town consisted of the gin, store / gas station and a grain elevator. The Lakeview Baptist Church was still active in the 1980s.
