Wayside was seven miles southwest of Ector in northern Panola County. It was probably established in the early 1880s. A post office opened in 1881, but closed in 1883. A school was in operation in 1897, when the enrollment was thirty-nine. By the mid-1930s the community no longer appeared on highway maps.
