Over the years, our city has become the Hub for transient population that work in the oilfield and/or transporting goods through our city. We have earned our reputation through hard work, uncompromising precision and constant learning and adapting. The city has been able to attract two major truck stops that have had a great impact in our city and we continue to attract other retail locations to our area.
History in a Pecan Shell:
There had been a small community called Ancaster near or on the land that is now known as Encinal. About the time the International-Great Northern Railroad came through in the early 1880s - there was a stop called Burro. Encinal is Spanish for Oak Grove and this name was submitted for a post office (which was granted) in 1883.
After the railroad came to town - it became a shipping point for sheep and cattle. The first school was established in 1886 and the population was a healthy 900 by 1890. In 1931 the town had three public schools with a total of 363 students.
In 1933 Encinal had a population of 800 and it stayed about the same through the 1940s. After the war the population drifted away until there were only 650 people living there. By 1949 it had dropped to only 300.
Natural gas had been discovered in the area in the 70s. Encinal has doubled its population from 300 people in 1980 to over 600 in 1990.
