On Saturday, July 19, 2008, the Post Oak Cemetery Association will unveil a state historical marker for the Post Oak Community.

Post Oak has been the center for a church, school and cemetery for the past century or more. Rev. Seaborn J. Foust donated the land for Pleasant Point Baptist Church, Post Oak School and cemetery. The school district was roughly bounded by Squaw Creek, Hood County line, Prairie Creek and Glen Rose. Another cemetery, Milam Chapel, lies within these boundaries, as well. These cemeteries are all that remain of a once-thriving agricultural community.

Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant is within this boundary and the historical marker will help Post Oak retain its history while urban growth surrounds it.

The dedication will begin at 2 p.m. at the Post Oak Cemetery. The public is invited to attend the celebration
