Talpa, in western Coleman County, was supposedly named for a large catalpa tree. Originally the town developed because it was a Santa Fe Railroad switching point and served as a farm market. In 1940 the population was 254, and the town had sixteen businesses, but by 1980 the figures had declined to 122 residents, three businesses, and a post office. In 1990 and again in 2000 the population was 127.
