Maryneal is an unincorporated community in southern Nolan County, Texas, United States. It lies along FM 608 south of the city of Sweetwater, the county seat of Nolan County.[1] Its elevation is 2,566 feet (782 m).[2] Although Maryneal is unincorporated, it has a post office, with the ZIP code of 79535;[3] the ZCTA for ZIP Code 79535 had a population of 181 at the 2000 census.[4]

Founded in 1907 along the Kansas City, Mexico and Orient Railway, the community was named for one or more people; the source of its name is disputed. In its early history, the community was more significant than it is today: it won a significant minority of the votes in an election (losing to Sweetwater) to determine the county seat, and a post office was established in Maryneal by being moved from Decker.[5]
