Historical Marker
    Located on the Old San Antonio Road, this area was settled in 1835 by Robert Rogers (1799-1870), who had received a land grant from the Mexican government. A settlement grew up around his property as he was joined by his brother Stephen Rogers and others. The community later included a church, school, post office, Masonic Lodge, and several stores. Bypassed by the Trinity & Brazos Valley Rail Line in 1906, the town was moved 1.6 miles west and renamed Normangee. Only a community cemetery (.1 mile north) remains at the original site.
