McClanahan, Texas is an unincorporated community in Falls County, Texas, six miles northeast of the county seat, Marlin, on FM 147.[1]

History[edit]

A post office operated in the small town from 1887 to 1904.[2] In 1890, when the population peaked at 150 residents, the community had two general stores and a Baptist church. Population continued to drop thanks in part to the Missouri Pacific Railroad abandoning the tracks that had ran through the town between Marlin and Waco. The population was 42 in 2000.
