This city was originally known as Highlands, probably for its location near Highland Creek. It was renamed in the 1890s. Madam St. Ambrose, postmistress, chose the name, which means "the mark" in French. During the Civil War, the town was known as Buttermilk Station after the soldiers' practice of purchasing buttermilk there on the trip between Galveston and Houston.
