YESNER, TX

YESNER, TEXAS. Yesner was a farming community in south central Hopkins County four miles northwest of Reilly Springs and a half mile east of the Union church. It was named for Max Yesner, a Sulphur Springs businessman. A post office operated from 1901 until 1906; Charles J. Hamrick was the first postmaster and suggested the name. At its height around 1900 Yesner had several stores and a gin. By the mid-1930s the community no longer appeared on highway maps.
