PULLIAM, TEXAS. Pulliam, on U.S. Highway 87 north of the North Concho River in northwest Tom Green County, was a station on the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway. It was apparently named for the family of M. B. Pulliam, a San Angelo rancher. The local school had twenty-seven pupils and one teacher by 1900, two teachers by 1930, and an average daily attendance of twenty-one in 1933. In the 1980s an abandoned railroad station remained at the townsite, and the combined Grape Creek-Pulliam School and the Pulliam oilfield were nearby.
