Wells is a town in Cherokee County, in the U.S. state of Texas. It was founded in 1885 as a railroad stop where it was named after the civil engineer of the railroad, Maj. E. H. Wells. Upon the railroad’s completion, a satellite camp was established nearby to fabricate charcoal for public ironworks. Although the intention was good, a lot of the town’s potential settlers were discouraged to move into the area. As a result, the townsmen remained at a small number; however, in the early 19th century, the camp was ceased and the town boomed soon after. Cattle-ranching, farming, and lumber-production were among the principal economic activities of Wells. The number of residents continued to increase past WWII, closing at 761 residents in 1990. Later that year, however, businesses gradually decreased and the population dropped to 26 in 1952. As of 2010, it has a population of 790.
