ROCK HILL, TX (CHEROKEE COUNTY)

ROCK HILL, TEXAS (Cherokee County). Rock Hill, on Farm Road 2274 fourteen miles northeast of Rusk in eastern Cherokee County, was probably first settled around the time of the Civil War. A school for black children was in operation there by 1896, when it had an enrollment of seventy-six. In the mid-1930s the settlement had a church, a school, and a number of houses. The school was later closed, and in the early 1990s only a church and cemetery remained in the area.
