Historical Marker
    In 1877, Baptist preacher W.H. Farmer moved his family to land here. He established the Farmer store, post office, Baptist church and cemetery, where the first burials date to 1880. There were soon approximately 150 residents in Farmer, which was officially platted in 1894. The town grew to include several businesses, three churches, a Masonic lodge and a baseball team. Despite adverse conditions, including heavy rains and long droughts, the town maintained a steady population until World War II, when many men and women left to serve in the military or find work in urban centers. Since that time, the families that stayed in the community have continued to use the cemetery, which is maintained by an association. The burial ground and the many names found among its markers serve as witness to the early town of Farmer. Historic Texas Cemetery - 2002
