Tamina, Texas

Tamina (population: 24,812) is an Unincorporated community in southern Montgomery County, Texas, United States.

Tamina is located along the Missouri Pacific line, located 1 mile (1.6 km) east of Interstate 45 and 8.5 miles (13.7 km) south of the city of Conroe.

James H. Berry promoted the community and named it after Tammany Hall, New York. The letter writer submitting the name to the postal department spelled the name "Tamina." As of 2008 the name is pronounced "Tammany."[1]

History

The Houston and Great Northern Railroad opened in the area in 1871. In 1897 a post office opened. In 1904 the community had 128 people. The office closed in 1905. The office re-opened during the same year. In 1915 the community had 100 people, a telephone connection, two general stores, and a grocery store. In 1925 50 people lived in Tamina. The post office closed during a period after 1935. In 1945 a station on the International and Great Northern Railroad served the community. In addition the community had two businesses, three schools (including a school for African-Americans with one teacher and serving grades 1 through 7), one church, and twelve dwellings scattered across the community. The African-American school closed in 1949 and the students attended Booker T. Washington School in Conroe. In the 1980s Tamina included dwellings scattered throughout the community, businesses, two standalone churches, and a combined church and cemetery located one quarter mile east of the center of the settlement.[1]

Education

The community is within the Conroe Independent School District.

The area is divided between the attendance zones of Oak Ridge Elementary School and Houser Elementary School.[2]
