Laguna, formerly known as Good Luck and Norwood, was at the intersection of Farm Road 334 and State Highway 55, a mile west of the Nueces River and sixteen miles northwest of Uvalde in west central Uvalde County. The name Good Luck, as the community was originally called, was changed to Norwood when a post office was established there in 1879 at the home of a Captain Follette, who was the first postmaster. In 1882 Rymond and Gregor Haby were among several families to move to the Norwood community. In 1884 the community of eighty produced wool, hides, and livestock for shipment and received semiweekly stagecoaches from Uvalde to Rocksprings and other points north. Norwood was the point where the road from Brackettville met the Uvalde-Rocksprings Road.
