In the mid-1880s Czech families settled in the southeastern part of Burleson County in a small pocket of Blackland Prairie soil located in a larger area generally known as Mound Prairie; there they formed an all-Czech community. They organized a cooperative store and built a structure for it in the latter 1880s. A candy store, a saloon, a school, and a Czechoslovak Benevolent Society lodge hall were built near the cooperative store. A Czech Moravian Brethren church also was built in 1913.
