​​A post office called Arbyrd has been in operation since 1911.[6] The town's name is a contraction of A. R. Byrd, a land and cattle speculator from the St. Louis area that lived near San Antonio, Texas, at the time he purchased just over 4000 acres of mostly hardwood timber land just to the north of where the town was originally platted.
