TELEGRAPH MILLS, TX
TELEGRAPH MILLS, TEXAS. Telegraph Mills was a settlement on the Trinity River off what is now Farm Road 2076, twelve miles west of Crockett in western Houston County. The community, probably established in the early 1850s, was near Hall's Bluff and served as a stopping point for steamboats hauling cotton down the Trinity and goods up from Galveston to Crockett. A post office operated there from 1856 to 1859. After the Civil War the town declined, and by 1900 no trace of it remained.
