Check Out The Tiniest Town In Texas
If you think you live in a small town, here is one smaller than yours. I have been through some small towns in my travels, but I don't think I have seen a smaller town than this one. Welcome to Guerra, Texas, population 6. You read that right, population 6. Guerra is in southwest Jim Hogg County, located in the Rio Grande Valley near Randado.
According to the 2010 census, the population was 6 and according to the 2020 census it has grown to 42 people. Obviously, the population isn't big enough for a school system so the children attend Hebbernville ISD and they rely on Hebberville Police Department.
Here is the history of this tiny town:
Back in late 1800;s a settler named A. Guerra settled the land, which is why the town is named after him. Originally the people living there preferred to call the town El Colorado because of all the red cattle in the area. The town quickly grew when the post office moved there in 1906. By 1914 the town was bigger than it is now with a population of 100 and a total of 16 businesses. Over the next 60 years, the town only grew by 25 people but over the next 30 years, the town dwindled down to only 15 people. No one can really explain why most of the population fled the town. So if you want to live in a town with almost no one around Guerra is the perfect place for you.
Growing up in Seminole, I thought Seagraves, Loop, Welman, and Ropesville were small but Guerra wins by a long shot.
