Inscription. Founded 1907 by a realty firm. Named by townsite surveyor, for his native county in Virginia.

When Roscoe, Snyder & Pacific Railroad reached this point in Sept. 1909, a 3-day picnic was held. Buildings at Light, Texas, a mile east, were moved here.

Town developed into important cattle shipping point, as long market drives were abandoned.

By 1912 had 2 wagon yards and 2 blacksmith shops, among many businesses. Later, shipped much cotton before railroad ceased operating here in 1942.

Now a prosperous agricultural community on good highways.
 
Erected 1966 by State Historical Survey Committee. (Marker Number 1930.)
