TORDILLA, TEXAS. Tordilla, three miles northwest of Fashing in eastern Atascosa County, was a stage stop and post office on the old San Patricio Trail from 1878 to 1888. In the early 1900s the old stage stand was converted into Stage Stand School. A hand-dug, boulder-lined well was all that remained of Tordilla in 1963.
