welcome TO FINK,TX!
History of Fink
Fink formed shortly before the Civil War when the family of Fred Fink and others moved into the area from their former home in Mississippi. The community was underdeveloped until after the war when all of NE Texas was infused with new settlers looking to start fresh with cheap Texas land.
Fink had a post office from 1897 to 1903 but the population never came close to a hundred. It declined to less than 20 during The Great Depression and averaged little more than that for the remainder of the 20th century. It is now what is known as “a dispersed rural community.”
The fourth Friday in June has been declared Fink Day in Texas, by the Texas Legislature (people who are familiar with the name). This coincides with “National Fink Week” which is a celebration held by families sharing that same surname.
The Fink Motel is located in Pottsboro, TX. near a community just off Farm Road 289, twelve miles north of Sherman in north central area near Lake Texoma
