DRASCO, TEXAS. Drasco, in north central Runnels County, was once called County Line because of its proximity to the Taylor county line. The community had a post office from 1904 to 1911; its name was composed of letters taken from the various names submitted by residents but not accepted by the post office. The population of Drasco reportedly never exceeded thirty. By 1940 it had a population of fifteen and one store. The 1982 county highway map showed two churches and several businesses at Drasco, which was still listed as a community in 1990. The population was twenty in 2000.
