Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Clarkson is a near-ghost town in Milam County, Texas, United States, 9 miles (14 km) northeast of Cameron, with a reported population now of just 10 residents. Located on Farm-to-Market Road 1445, Clarkson's population peaked at 50 in the 1940s, and at that time the town had two schools: a one-teacher school for 43 white students, and a two-teacher school for 105 black students. Both consolidated with the Cameron Independent School District in the 1950s, as the population dropped.
