Nickel (Nickle) is a rural community on Ranch Road 532 twelve miles northeast of the town of Gonzales in northeastern Gonzales County. It had acquired a post office by 1886, and in 1890 it had triweekly mail delivery, a gristmill, a gin, a general store, a winemaker, and a population of twenty-five. By 1896 mail was delivered daily. The community had been reduced to one business and ten citizens by 1933. By the mid-1940s its population had grown to twenty-five, but after 1948 no further population figures were available. Nickel was still identified on the 1988 county highway map.
