CORINTH SCHOOL COMMUNITY, TEXAS. The Corinth School Community was in southeastern Ellis County. It began when the one-room Corinth School was built in 1870. The Corinth Baptist Church and churches of other denominations met in the school. In 1894 the school had fifty-two students. Eventually the schoolhouse was moved to Ensign, and the Corinth School Community ceased to exist.
