Button Prairie

Button Prairie, seven miles southeast of Milano in eastern Milam County, was supposedly named for the buttonlike acorns produced by oak trees in the region. A church and a few scattered houses appeared on county highway maps of the area in 1941. There was no evidence of the community in 1988.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
