Pumpkin is a small rural community located near the junction of Farm Road 2693 and State Highway 150 about ten miles west-southwest of Coldspring in west central San Jacinto County. This settlement in the Sam Houston National Forest probably began in the late 1800s and was named for a nearby creek. Highway maps in the 1930s showed homes in the area. By the late twentieth century Pumpkin had a store, a church, and a volunteer fire department. In 2000 the population was 150.
