Town of Teddy, Montgomery County Texas
From Heritage Museum of Montgomery



TEDDY. In the late 1800’s, the community of Teddy was carved out of the forest nine miles east of Willis between Peach Creek and Turkey Creek. The original name selected for the community was Eddy. In Texas, there was a post office named Eddy…so it was decided Teddy would be its name. The residents farmed, raised cattle, and harvested timber for their livelihoods. During the winter some residents trapped game which would be traded at the general store. The homes in which people lived were typical Texas farm homes. Most houses had a long porch across the front with a fireplace at each end of the structure. There is nothing left of Teddy today. Buildings are gone, and the forests have grown back.
