Arden is a town in Irion County, Texas. Its population as of the 2000 United States Census was only one inhabitant. It was named for the Arden family, who claimed the area in 1885. With a post office established in 1890, and a school in 1892, the town grew to a population of 130 by 1947. However, drought and low cotton prices eventually suffocated the city, and most businesses were abandoned by 1966.
