Barry Tx was established in 1886.
The population was 209 at the 2000 census. The city is named for former Texas Ranger and Navarro County Sheriff, Buck Barry.
Bryan T. Barry, the owner of the land on which the town developed is the obvious namesake. Originally a mile south of the present-day town, basic amenities ( a cotton gin and post office) were in operation in the mid 1880s. It was the arrival of the railroad that shifted the town’s center in 1888.
In 1896 the first public school opened with an estimated student population of 127. By 1914 the population had increased to around 400 residents and Barry had a newspaper as well as two banks and nearly all essential businesses.
The population only declined to 350 as the Great Depression was growing to an end in the late 1930s. In the late 1950s Barry’s school district merged with that of Blooming Grove. The 1970 census reported 175 residents with only two businesses open. The 2000 census slowed a slight improvement, counting 208 residents.
The median income for a household in the city was $40,000, and the median income for a family was $42,500.
The City of Barry is served by the Blooming Grove Independent School District.
