Map of Bell County

Echo, formerly called Miller, was a post office and railroad station on the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad two miles south of Temple in central Bell County. The site was known as Miller until about 1884, when the railroad established a branch line there, known as the Belton Railroad, and the community became a station at the intersection of the two lines. In 1884 a post office called Echo was granted to the community, which was known by that name through at least 1948. In 1890 Echo had a hotel, a railroad agent, and seven inhabitants. Its post office was discontinued in 1894. In 1948 Echo consisted of several scattered dwellings, and by 1988 the site of the community was within the Temple city limits.
