Pearl had a post office from 1883 until 1935.[2]

The Rock Island served the area for many years until the company ceased operation in 1980. The track was then used by various rail lines until being abandoned in the mid-1990s. While part of the line was scrapped, the remaining track from Abilene to Woodbine has been purchased by the Abilene and Smoky Valley Railroad. All that remains in Pearl today are the tracks, the elevator, and the ruins of a solitary stone house.[citation needed]
