Plain

Plain was a rural community four miles east of Tadmor in the Davy Crockett National Forest in eastern Houston County; it was first settled before the late 1880s. A school was established around 1888, and a post office operated from 1902 to 1905. In the mid-1930s Plain had a church and a number of houses. After World War II most of the residents moved away, and by the early 1990s only the church and a few widely scattered houses remained in the area. 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.
