Ophelia

Ophelia was a small rural community seven miles northeast of Lockhart in northern Caldwell County. A post office operated from 1880 until 1891, when mail was sent to Lockhart. By 1884 the community had two churches, a school, two steam gristmills and cotton gins, and thirty-five residents. Ophelia was not marked on county highway maps in the 1940s, and no population estimates were available.

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.
