History & History Related Items

Here is a history page for Aubrey and the area

Long ago, a Cherokee Indian village was located here. It was called Onega. As the area began to be settled after the Civil War, the name remained Onega. One of the first settlers was Lemual Noah Edwards, a Civil War veteran from Alabama. He is the one noted as the founder of the town. The Texas and Pacific Railway came in 1881 when they built a section house here. Also in 1881, the name of the town was changed. The name, Onega, was not a popular one, but the difficulty remained to choose a new name. The suggestions for a name were all placed in a hat and the name of Aubrey was drawn out, giving the community the new name of Aubrey.
By 1900, the community had grown rapidly with many stores and businesses, including four cotton gins, flour mills, a large school and the Miller Hotel.. By 1920, there were 700 residents in Aubrey, but soon the population began to decline due to several factors, including the depression, the automobile and the boll weevil which hurt the cotton crops in the area. When cotton became less profitable, the peanut crop began to blossom. A local peanut festival continues even now.
The Aubrey area is also now known as the horse capital of Texas with many horse ranchers moving in. The most prominent crops, aside from peanuts are fruits, vegetables and hay.
