BLUE SPRINGS, TEXAS (Nacogdoches County). Blue Springs was on Farm Road 226 twenty-five miles southeast of Nacogdoches in extreme southeastern Nacogdoches County. It was named for a nearby spring. A Blue Springs school was in operation by 1904, when it had an enrollment of fifty-four. During the 1930s the settlement comprised the school, a church, and a number of houses. The school was closed during the 1940s, and by the early 1990s only a cemetery and a few scattered houses remained in the area.
