History on a Pinhead

Little is known of the earlier history of Mungerville or even if there was an earlier history. First reports are from 1947 when two businesses and a school were reported. The population that year was seventy which may have been a peak. It soon disappeared from maps although the 2000 census counted twenty residents.

My name is Tammy Miller. My parents, four brothers and myself lived in the Mungerville School House when I was born in 1962. My parents name are Guy Homer Miller and Evelyn Elizabeth Dawdy Miller.

If you have any other history on Mungerville iI would love to know more about its history. We left there when I was about 4 years old - Thank you, Tammy Miller, September 3, 2021
