Loma

Loma is a dispersed community just north of State Highway 30 sixteen miles southwest of Huntsville in Walker County. A post office operated there from 1901 until 1905. The settlement's population reached seventy-five in 1933 but had dwindled by 1949 to forty, a level it reported until 1966. In 1936 the community had two businesses, a seasonal industry, a nearby church, and numerous scattered farm dwellings. In 1990 Loma was still listed as a community.

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.
