The total population sign just below our house reads "Population: 316" but someone put an "8" over the "6" making it read "Population: 318." Anyway, my cowboy and I have always debated if this is really true or not. He's always said it's an old sign and there are probably a lot more people that live here now. Well...

I just found the 2000 census information for our little town. Granted, a lot can happen in 10 years. So we'll have to see how it compares to the census results for 2010. Although I can't imagine it being that different. It's not like we have new developments and new subdivisions going in all the time. :) So here you go:


As of the census of 2000, there were 316 people, 100 households, and 80 families residing in the city .According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 0.3 square miles (0.8 km²), all of it land. The population density was 1,074.9 people per square mile (420.7/km²). There were 117 housing units at an average density of 398.0/sq mi (155.8/km²).

There were 100 households out of which 45.0% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 72.0% wer emarried couples living together, 6.0% had a female householder with no husband present, and 20.0% were non-families. 19.0% of all households were made up of individuals and 11.0% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 3.16 and the average family size was 3.65.

My husband's family size was off the charts then at 11! But we are doing pretty good now, at a household size of 4.

So...I just want to state for the record that what I usually say is actually true: There are more cows here than people. (Remember we have about 300 cows alone.) And many more farmers around here have cows. It's what they do. I'd LOVE to get the total population of cows! Now wouldn't that be interesting.
