River Hill, at the junction of U.S. Highway 79 and Farm Road 123, eight miles northeast of Carthage in northeastern Panola County, was established before 1900. In the mid-1930s the community had several businesses, a church, a school, and a number of houses. After World War II the school was consolidated with Carthage school, but in the mid-1960s several stores and a church still remained in the area. In the early 1990s River Hill was a dispersed rural community.
