Who'd Thought It

Who'd Thought It was a farming community in northern Hopkins County east of Tira and just north of Sand Hill off Farm Road 1536. It was probably established sometime after 1900. Levi Kearny operated the first store. How the town acquired its unusual name is not known. At its height prior to World War II, Who'd Thought It had two stores and a number of scattered houses. Children attended school in nearby Sand Hill. The stores later closed, and in the late 1980s the community was a ghost town. No population estimates were available.
