The 5 Smallest Towns In Texas – Could You Live This Remote?
Let me say this upfront, I like where I live. Texarkana may not be centrally located within my state but it's in a spot where some beautiful parts of our country are just not very far away. So, the question came up, how small could you get, town-wise? Personally, I think I'm there. But the urge to get small strikes a note with a lot of people. So, other than a piece of land all by yourself, here are the "5 smallest towns in Texas."
#5: Lago, Texas - Population 204
Lago looks more like a neighborhood than it does a town. It's located right on the Texas/Mexico border so we assume it's been kinda busy there the last year and a half or so. It is considered to be in the Brownsville–Harlingen Metropolitan Statistical Area.
#4: Manuel Garcia Colonia, Texas - Population 203
Again, Manuel Garcia Colonia, Texas looks more like a neighborhood than it does a real town, but when you punch it up on the Google Map, there it is.
#1: (3-way tie) Salineno, Texas - Population 201
Salineno, Texas is small alright, but at least it looks more like a town than the previous two. This one actually has a church and a Post Office.
#1: (3-way tie) Pecan Gap, Texas - Population 201
Located between Paris and Greenville, Pecan Gap is again looking more like a real town. It has an elementary school, a few churches, and a cemetery.
#1: (3-way tie) Broaddus, Texas - Population 201
Same population but more choices. Broaddus, Texas has at least four churches, an elementary school, Dairy Mart, Brookshire Bros, and pictured above is the actual City Hall. Apparently, the photo was taken by Google on election day 2021.
There you go, the smallest we could find according to the figures on City-Data.com.
