SEFCIKVILLE, TX

SEFCIKVILLE, TEXAS. Sefcikville, first called Marekville, was near Seaton and eight miles east of Temple in eastern Bell County. The community, founded in the early 1900s, was settled by Czechs and named for T. T. Sefcik, who operated a store and community center there. In 1939 the community reported twenty residents and one business. Its population had fallen to ten by 1964, and soon thereafter it seems to have been abandoned.
