Arno, Texas ghost town
The site that was Arno

Arno was a community promoted to out-of-state settlers looking for fertile land. Evidently the promoters weren't convincing enough, or the settlers moved on to greener pastures - or at least pastures that had some green.

A post office was granted and was open from 1907 until 1915.

The community had a population of ten in the 1930s - making it a rival to relatively nearby Orla.

Something occurred in the late 1940s to make the resident population leave. The 1950 census enumerator found the town empty.
