BLACK HILLS, TX
BLACK HILLS, TEXAS. Black Hills, on Farm Road 1839 eight miles northwest of Corsicana in north central Navarro County, was probably established before 1900. By 1906 a two-teacher school was in operation there with eighty-nine students. At its height just before World War I, Black Hills had a cotton gin, a store, and a church. The community began to decline during the 1920s, and by the mid-1930s only a cemetery and a few houses remained. In 1990 Black Hills was a dispersed community; by 2000, however, the population had grown to eighty.
