Normanna, Texas

HISTORY

Welcome to Normanna, Texas

One From The Far North.

Normanna, Texas is located in Bee County near Medio Creek on US Highway 181. The area, first settled in 1848, became known as Walton in 1874. After a Norwegian colony moved to the area in 1893, it became known, while attempting to establish a post office in 1894, that another town in Texas was named Walton. The town then became known as Normanna, and to the locals, their new town name meant "the home of the Norsemen."

The San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railway was built through town in 1896, but Normanna's glory days would begin to fade as the automobile became popular.
