NALYON, TEXAS. Nalyon was on Mill Creek two miles northeast of Vanderpool in western Bandera County. A post office opened there in 1895, with Andrew Stigler as postmaster; it was discontinued in 1897, when the mail was sent to Medina. The Nalyon school was consolidated with the Vanderpool district in 1939. The school building and a residence marked Nalyon on county highway maps in the late 1940s, but by the 1980s these structures were no longer shown on maps.
