OAK HILL, TEXAS (Rusk County). Oak Hill is at the junction of Farm roads 782 and 1716, ten miles northeast of Henderson in northeastern Rusk County. Its population has followed a common area pattern: from ten people in the 1930s it grew to eighty in the 1940s and to 100 in the 1950s and 1960s, then dropped by the early 1970s to twenty-four, where it was still reported through 2000.
