Jarrell Texas History: 
Jarrell was founded in 1909 by O.D. Jarrell and E.C. Haeber on the proposed Bartlett and Western Railway line. The arrival of the railroad caused the death of the town of Corn Hill located one mile east of Jarrell. By 1910, the town had a saloon and two stores. The Jarrell post office was established in 1912. By 1914, Jarrell had a waterworks, electric lights, a movie theater, a hotel, and 500 residents. The town began to decline after the 1920s and 1930s decline of the cotton industry and after the railroad failed in the 1930s. Jarrell incorporated in 2001. Light manufacturing is one of the town’s main industries. A devastating F-5 tornado hit Jarrell in May 1997, killing 27 people. Jarrell is located on Donahoe Creek at the intersection of IH-35 and FM 487, 41.7 miles northeast of Austin, 14 miles northeast of Georgetown, 9.6 miles southwest of Salado, 18.4 miles southwest of Belton, 31 miles northwest of Taylor, 18 miles northwest of Granger, and 12 miles northwest of Walburg, Texas.
