Cego is on Farm Road 1950 seven miles southwest of Chilton in western Falls County. When it was founded in the early 1880s by a group of German-American farmers, the community was known as Pleasant Valley. A few years later, when residents applied to the postal department for a star route, the name of the town had to be changed because a Pleasant Valley, Texas, already existed. The name Cego was chosen in honor of a cotton picker who had worked on several of the local farms. The Cego post office was granted in 1895; it was discontinued ten years later, and mail for the community was sent to Eddy.
