History & History Related Items

Avinger history:

The area was first known as Hickory Hill when it was settled around 1840. The East Line and Red River Railroad came through in 1876 and a train station was built where Avinger would be situated. Soon businesses began to come to the new town and eventually the post office relocated from Hickory Hill in 1877. The post office and town were re-named for Dr. H.J. Avinger, in whose store the post office was located. By 1884, the town had a population of 50 with a school and several mills. By 1892, the population had grown to 100 people and just a few years later in 1914 to about 500. Avinger grew little for a number of years with just five more residents in 1925 bringing the total to 505 at that time. In 1929, there were about 700 people in Avinger. The depression hit the community hard and many left, dropping the population to about 450 in 1931. The town of Avinger incorporated during this time. During World War II, a steel plant was built here and in the post war years, many renovations were begun. By 1960, the population had risen to its high of 750. Decreasing population has occurred since that time with about 478 at the time of the 1990 census.
