The town gets its popularity from its local lakefront neighborhoods. Located at the corner of Texas State Highway 78 and Farm to Market Road 725 McQueeney is a sleepy little town that is home to Blake’s Café and several other businesses. German settlers first moved to the area around 1870. When the railroad was built, the local stop was named Hilda. In 1900, a local businessman, C. F. Blumberg, built a general store east of the rail stop hoping to get the railroad to move the stop from Hilda to his store, Blumberg called the site McQueeney, in honor of the local railroad superintendent. The railroad was never persuaded, but the post office which opened in 1900 was called McQueeney and it has remained that.
