Myrtle Town Community

Recommended Posts

Briefly mentioned in another thread, is the small city called Myrtle Texas, originally known as Myrtle Turf. The historic town community was located off of Almeda Road.

The town was located two miles south of Houston in southern Harris County. A Myrtle Turf post office operated from 1839 to 1843. The community reported a population of 153 in 1940, when it was on the International and Great Northern line. By the 1980s only scattered dwellings remained at the town site.
