Hagerville

Hagerville, on Hager Creek near Farm Road 357 sixteen miles southeast of Crockett in southeastern Houston County, was established before 1890 and was named for early settler James M. Hager. It had a post office from 1891 to 1906. By 1892 it had a Baptist church, as well as a school, a blacksmith, a shoemaker, and a general store. Hagerville's population in 1896 was estimated as thirty. By the mid-1930s only a church and a number of scattered houses remained at the site. In the early 1990s Hagerville was a dispersed rural community. In 2000 the population was seventy.
