Pontotoc was formerly the junction of the roads leading from Llano and Fort Mason to San Saba. This unincorporated community on Pontotoc Creek, in northeastern Mason County, Texas is located at the junction of State Highway 71 and Ranch to Market Road 501. In the 1850s, early settlers arrived including Benjamin J. Willis who moved into the area in 1859 along with four or five other families, and by 1878 the community was well established. Also, M. Robert Kidd, who owned the first general store business is credited to have named the town after his former home, Pontotoc, Mississippi. In 1880, the first post office was established in the home of Benjamin Willis with Ellen Willis as postmistress. Pontotoc fell victim to a typhoid epidemic in 1887, in such severity that it caused the establishment of a second cemetery to serve the needs. When a move to found a new county called Mineral County was made in 1890, Mason residents petitioned and were able to stop making Pontotoc the county seat.
