WIHAN, TEXAS. Wihan was a temporary post village in the vicinity of Call, forty-five miles northeast of Beaumont in southern Newton County. Named for the law firm of C. C. Wightman and J. A. Hancock, the Wihan post office was established in December 1916. Amanda West served as postmistress. Less than two years later, the Wihan office was discontinued and moved to Call. No identifiable community remained.
