Pearl City

Pearl City is at the intersection of State Highway 111 and Farm Road 951, across the road from the site of old Hochheim Prairie in the northern tip of DeWitt County. It was reputedly named for the quantity of Pearl Beer sold in Walter Hagen's store, built there in 1935. In 1962 the community had this store, two residences, a blacksmith shop, and a garage. It was still listed as a community in 1990. By 2000 the population was four.

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.
