Sholar was twenty miles northeast of Center in far northeastern Shelby County. It was probably named for the Sholar family, who lived in the area. The community had a post office from 1900 until 1915 and probably served as the post office for the nearby sawmill community of Eagle Mills. In 1914, in addition to the post office, the settlement had a store and a gin. Sholar had ceased to exist as a named community by 1946.

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.
