I was on a Saturday morning drive to photograph some historic Texas county courthouses when I saw a sign pointing to Nemo. I quickly swerved off the highway to try to find Nemo! Turns out that Nemo is an unincorporated community in eastern Somervell County, with a population of 56 in 1990. According to Wiki: Settlement of the area began in the mid-19th century. Originally called Johnson Station after local settler Jimmie Johnson, residents attempted to receive a post office designation under the same name. The postal authorities, however, suggested a shorter name be used. When the residents met to choose a name, one man argued for the name Nemo, which was Latin for "no one." He also said that if Johnson's name was not good enough, "then no one's was." In 1893, a post office branch under the name Nemo was established. Well, I never did see any sign for Nemo, but I did find this barn!
