Dyersdale, Texas

Dyersdale is an Unincorporated community in Harris County, Texas, United States.

The name originates from Clement C. Dyer, one of the "Old Three Hundred" of Stephen F. Austin's colonists.[1]

A post office opened in 1913. In 1914 the community, with 250 residents, had a lumber company. The post office closed in 1917. An oilfield opened in the mid-1930s. In 1936 the community had scattered residences and a school. By 1946 the oilfield was still in production. In the 1980s Dyersdale had an abandoned railroad station, a church, and a trailer park.[1]
