Communities of Young County

Organized settlement of Young County began with Fort Belknap in 1851
the Lower Brazos Indian Resevation in 1854 and the town of Belknap
in 1856. Early settlers were attracted to this area by the promise of
protection by the Federal fort. Soon, however, pioneers began moving
out along the Brazos River to found small communities and towns.
Communities and community schools were loosely knit farms and ranches
that met at a common location (church, school, etc.) for educational,
religious and social activities. Towns are more closely defined locations
of residences and businesses that usually offered additional services to
their residents. The following towns, communities, and schools have been
located in Young County. Many are familiar and some are forgotten but each
community made up the fabric of Young County, Texas.
