Peggy, Texas. Peggy is at the intersection of Farm Road and an unnamed road that is approximately twenty-seven miles away from Jourdanton in southeastern Atascosa County. If you're looking for a small town, you will have an advantage of finding one of the smallest towns you could imagine.

It began in the early 1930s, when landowners had several hundred laborers clear mesquite and brush for farm land. To serve the needs of the workers and area residents, a store was built and they called it Hollywood. A gin was built across the road. The community was called Hollywood for several years, but in the late 1930s a post office opened with the name Peggy, after a niece of John Mowinkle.

In 1939 the town had a population of twenty-five and one business. In the 1940's, Peggy had two businesses and twenty-five residents. The population rose to fifty by 1961, but eventually decreased to twenty in the 1960's. In 1990 Peggy had a store with a post office, a farm machine shop, and twenty residents.
