Wigginsville

Wigginsville is a dispersed rural community located on Farm Road 3083 about eight miles southeast of Conroe in east central Montgomery County. The town probably began by the early 1900s and was named for the Wiggins family. In the 1930s Wigginsville consisted of numerous homes, a church, and several businesses, probably supported by the region's oil industry and proximity to Conroe Oilfield. A sawmill operated in the community around the 1940s and 1950s and utilized the area's vast timber resources. By the latter part of the twentieth century Wigginsville was still shown on highway maps, but no population estimates were available in 2000.
