Around 1850 the town had come to be known as White Settlement. The settlers moved into Comanche lands making them flee. I propose the town be renamed to Farmer’s Settlement.  Three hundred and 20 acres where the town currently sits was owned by two brothers, Elijah (Lige) Ward Farmer and Joseph Farmer.

This country has progressed and has become more culturally accepting since the 19th century; the town name needs to change. It continues to perpetuate Texas stereotypes.  Texans no longer want to be known for this antiquated thinking on social and political issues. 

With all the racial tension and divides in this country, I wonder who even wants their mailing address to include this town name? Profitable businesses would prefer to steer clear of this place. Unless the name changes you should steer clear too!
