Here Are 5 of the Smallest, Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Texas Towns
Considering how big Texas is, it isn't surprising that we have a lot of weird town names; or that we have a lot of towns with a population around 100 or less. So, we got a map out and started poking around, and wow! We loved finding out about the lovely little places hidden throughout the Texas Panhandle.
Before we get started, we do need to define what an unincorporated community is. This is an area with a population that has a "common social identity," but they don't have a municipal organization or official political designation of town or city. You'll see these pop up on our list more than once.
Here's our list of itsy bitsy teenie weenie tiny Texas towns.
Conway, TX - Population 3
Conway is home of the Bug Ranch. It's like the Cadillac Ranch, but with half-buried VW Beetles. Conway has the distinction of having the first permanent school in the Texas panhandle, and as of 2016 it's population was 3.
Vigo Park, TX - Population 10
Vigo Park is in the Texas panhandle and in 2018 it had a whole whopping 10 people living there. That's down a bit from the 31 that were counted in 2010. This teeny tiny town is southeast of Amarillo.
Heckville, TX - Population 20
Just northeast of Lubbock, you'll find Heckville. When you pass by now you'll mostly see large warehouses, an abandoned country store, and the old cotton gin. One thing you'll notice that is noteworthy is the egg ranch that produces around 180,000 eggs per day.
That's a lot of omelets.
Kerrick, TX - Population 25
Here's one of those unincorporated communities we mentioned. Kerrick is an unincorporated community of Texline right next to the Oklahoma-Texas line. In 1933 they got a post office, and it's still open to this day.
I wouldn't mind having that delivery route.
Lipscomb, TX - Population 37
Lipscomb is another tiny Texas panhandle town that has one thing many other tiny towns don't...a website. Their website has a lot of interesting information, even info on vaccination clinics. Small but mighty, indeed.
