NEW HOPE, TX (LIMESTONE COUNTY)

NEW HOPE, TEXAS (Limestone County). New Hope is on Farm Road 1512 twenty-two miles southeast of Mexia in the southeastern corner of Limestone County. In the mid-1890s the school at New Hope had forty-three students. The Trinity and Brazos Valley Railway bypassed New Hope by two miles in 1906, limiting the community's chances for growth. A church and a few scattered houses marked New Hope on the county highway map in the late 1940s; only the church and a cemetery appeared on maps of the area in the 1980s.
