in a Pecan Shell
According to the Handbook of Texas, the town had an estimated population
of 87 people as late as 1986. Today the only sign that it was a community is a
vacant one-room school house and a ruin of a former gas station / garage.
Maryetta TX Schoolhouse
"From __?__ until the late 1970's the old schoolhouse was used weekly as
a domino hall." - Scott Gleason, March 06, 2006
Maryetta Gas Station
"The old gas station you took photos of once belonged to my grandparents.
They ran the gas station and the room at the front was the convenient store. Candy,
sodas and a few groceries. The rest of the building was their home. I spent some
time there in my younger days. I just thought you might want a little history
on the old building." - Sherry Rupe, May 26, 2013
