The residents occupied tents and picket homes. Principal building was two-story school, church, and hall of Dee Ora Lodge No. 715, A.F. & A.M. Town had a post office Aug. 1890 - Aug. 1891. Postmaster was Thomas Stevenson, uncle of a future Texas governor. Losing 1891 county seat election to Sonora, Wentworth citizens moved away.
