SHILOH, TEXAS (Rusk County). Shiloh, a farming community four miles east of Mount Enterprise in southeastern Rusk County, began about 1848. By 1940 the Shiloh school had been consolidated with that of Minden, and by the close of that decade the community centered around two Baptist churches and a cemetery. No population figures were available for Shiloh, which by 1984 was marked only by a church and cemetery.
