Plain Community: Led by members of the Conner, McKinney, and Drennan Families, this East Texas framing community was permanently settled in the 1850s. Named for the "Plain Folks" who lived here, the settlement included a school, church, grist mill, cotton gin, post office, and this cemetery, which began in the mid-1850s on the Frederick Conner Family Land. Residents of the community farmed and worked for the nearby 4-C sawmill operation at the turn of the century. Although never recorded as a townsite, the plain community has survived as a reminder of early Houston County history.
