Hahn Prairie

Hahn Prairie (Hahn) was at the junction of Farm roads 1160 and 2546, on the old Hahn ranch sixteen miles northwest of Wharton in northwestern Wharton County. A post office operated there from 1897 until 1929. The local school had thirty-two pupils and one teacher in 1905. The population in 1910 was fifty.
