ELKINS, TX (BROWN COUNTY)

ELKINS, TEXAS (Brown County). Elkins, at the intersection of two country roads eight miles southeast of Brownwood in southeastern Brown County, developed on two early Comanche Indian trails. The community had a post office from 1901 to 1906, and in the early 1940s it had a church, a business, and a population of fifteen. By 1947 Elkins reported a business and a population of twenty-five, but by 1949 no population figures were available. A cemetery remained at the site in the 1980s.
