Billed as the "Biggest Little City in Texas," Kirkland by the 1920s had three churches, a three-room school, and several businesses, including three grocery stores, two lumber yards, two barber shops, five filling stations, three hardware stores, and a bank. The Furr's Grocery and Cafeteria corporations had their beginning at Kirkland when Crone W. Furr opened his first mercantile store in 1905.
