History

The Compere brothers of Abilene are credited with the founding of the community in 1903. They bought part of the AJ Ranch in anticipation of the arrival of the Kansas, Mexico and Orient Railway and named it in honor of W.W. Sylvester, the railroad's promotion manager. The rails reached Sylvester in 1905 and businesses followed. By 1909, the community had an estimated population of 600. Sylvester incorporated in 1927 and the 1930 reported 382 residents. That figure rose to 405 in 1940. Competition from nearby towns caused Sylvester to decline. It had reverted to unincorporated status by 1950 and by the 1980s, fewer than 100 people remained in the community, but supported a grocery store Sylvester Mercantile owned and operated by C. L. "Chubb" Hardwick, a Cotton Gin owned operated by the Jeffery Family of McCaulley, a gas station owned and operated by Truman Mauldin, as well as a seasonal grainery.

Although Sylvester is unincorporated, it continues to have a post office in operation with the zip code of 79560. In the 60's and 70's the U.S. Pos office was managed by Postmaster Mrs. Buford (Ruth Brown) who retired in the late 70's. Mrs. Bobbie Hardwick was Postmaster until her retirement until 1999.

To date, the only business besides Agriculture is the Sylvester McCaulley Water Supply managed by Randy Kelly.
