COXVILLE, TEXAS. Coxville was fifteen miles southwest of Bastrop in western Bastrop County. A post office was established there in 1888, with John A. J. Cox as postmaster. In the 1890s the community also had a general store, a corn mill and gin, a Baptist church, and a district school. Its post office was discontinued in 1906, and by the late 1940s no evidence of Coxville was shown on county highway maps.
