About Wood County, Texas
Wood County is located in the north east of Texas and has a population of approximately 42,000 spread over 696 square miles, although 50 of these consist of water. The county, founded in 1850, was named after George T. Wood, governor of Texas from 1847 to 1849. The county seat is Quitman, which was also established in 1850.
The county’s largest city is Mineola, where a local story claims that a railroad official combined the names of two local daughters, Minnie and Olla, to create the city name – although it is more likely that the city was named after the railroad worker’s home town of Mineola, New York. The city was founded when two railroads met, the Texas and Pacific and the International-Great Northern. A city government was established in 1873 and a Post Office followed in 1875.
