History in a Pecan Shell

It was named for Senator Ferdinand C. Weinert of Seguin. The area was in the Ferris Ranch in the 1880s and afterward. No town existed before the Wichita Valley Railroad built through in 1906.

In 1909 Weinert was hit hard by a storm, and a fire burned out a block of businesses a year later. In spite of these and other storms and fires Weinert had a population of 510 and fifteen businesses in 1940. Changes in agricultural patterns and transportation reduced Weinert more effectively than storm and fire. The local population had dwindled to 253 by 1980 and 172 by 2010.

Weinert School

Photographer's Note:
"A school left during the gradual depopulation of rural West Texas. The Weinert School has been empty for a few years, but the trophy cases are still in the halls, filled with trophies of former students. I'd like to get in and have a look. Weinert is in Haskell County. Students now go to Haskell." - Stephen and Liz Taylor, Austin TX
