Maple

Maple, on Farm Road 596 in southern Bailey County, was named for Maple Wilson, an early settler. It was established after local ranches were subdivided for farms; its post office opened in 1926. In 1940 Maple had six businesses, a school, and 600 residents. By 1980 its population had declined to 130, but the town still retained its post office and several businesses. In 1990 the population was still reported as 130. The population dropped to seventy-five in 2000.

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.
