Click is a ghost town in Llano County, Texas, on County Road 308, southeast of Llano and southwest of Kingsland.[3] The community was named for settler Malachi Click.[4] Many descendants of Malachi Click are buried in the Llano City Cemetery.[5] Benjamin F. Lowe was appointed postmaster when Click got a post office in 1880. The post office was discontinued during World War II.[6]
