Buesing, TX

Craig H. Roell General

Buesing was a German community at the junction of Farm roads 952 and 2656, seven miles west of Yorktown in western DeWitt County. The community center was the Buesing School, organized in 1914 and named for Henry Buesing, who donated the land. A store was built near the school in 1931 and was still shown on the 1965 county highway map. The Buesing school operated until 1950. In the 1980s the locale was called Cotton Patch.
