Needmore, at the junction of State Highway 214 and Farm Road 298, in central Bailey County, was so named because the townsite promoters wanted more settlers. The name did not bring the desired results after the town's founding in the 1920s. By 1940 there were only twenty residents and two stores at the site, although by 1980 the population had reached ninety-eight, where it remained in 1990. The population dropped to forty-five by 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.
