STUEBNER, TEXAS. Stuebner was between Willow and Spring creeks thirty miles northwest of Houston in northern Harris County. The site had been an Orcoquisac village. The community was a rural trading center before Tomball and Hufsmith became railroad depot towns. A post office was established there in 1885 and operated until 1911, when mail was delivered from Hufsmith. In 1890 Stuebner had a population of 400, a cotton mill, a gin, and Adolf Herrmann Stuebner's general store. Three churches, a sawmill, a cornmill, and a gin were constructed by 1896, but the population began to decline thereafter and had largely disappeared by 1900. Indian Hill school and Stuebner oilfield were located nearby.
