Weinert is at the intersection of U.S. Highway 277 and Farm Road 617, on the Burlington Northern Railroad sixteen miles northeast of Haskell in northern Haskell County. It was named for Senator Ferdinand C. Weinert of Seguin. The area was in the Ferris Ranch in the 1880s and afterward, and no town existed before the Wichita Valley Railroad built through in 1906. In 1909 Weinert was hit hard by a storm, and a fire burned out a block of businesses a year later. In spite of these and other storms and fires Weinert had a population of 510 and fifteen businesses in 1940. Changes in agricultural patterns and transportation reduced Weinert more effectively than storm and fire. The local population had dwindled to 253 by 1980. In 1990 it was 235, and in 2000 it was 177.
