Pickett (Picket), a rural community five miles south of Corsicana on Farm Road 709 in south central Navarro County, was probably established before 1900. By 1906 a school had an enrollment of forty-six. In the mid-1930s Pickett had two stores, a church, and a number of houses; the estimated population in 1936 was seventy-five. After World War II the stores closed, and the school was consolidated with Corsicana schools. By the mid-1960s only a church and a few scattered houses remained. In 1990 Pickett was a dispersed rural community and no population estimates were available. By 2000 the population was listed as thirty.
