Yancey, Texas. Yancey has had there fair share of names since they have been around. Formerly known as Tehuacana and before that Moss, Yancey is fourteen miles south of Hondo in south central Medina County. It was named for Yancey Kilgore and Yancey Strait, sons of the owners of the town lands.

A post office was established in 1897 with Benjamin F. Moss as postmaster. Yancey had a country store and a cotton gin. The Community School, Styles School, and Tehuacana School operated in the area; they were consolidated into one large central school in 1912.

By 1914 Yancey had 350 inhabitants, two general stores, a drug store, a cotton gin, and a blacksmith shop and was known for the quality of its peaches, plums, and its famous "Yancey watermelons." Most of the residents were German American. In 1924 people in Yancey were entirely dependent upon the soil for a living. Principle products that year were cattle, hogs, goats, corn, cotton, honey, and grains. The Yancey area school became the first in Medina County to offer vocational agriculture and home economics.

Today Yancey offers the best around in small town living. They have many nearby attractions and tons of outdoor recreational opportunities to make anyone happy. The community spirit is as amazing as you can imagine in a small town. Not only does everyone know your name, its obvious they are proud to have you as a neighbor too.
