Antioch

Antioch is a small church community three miles northeast of Bullard in southern Smith County. By 1903 the settlement reported a one-teacher school for fifty-two White students and another for twenty-nine black students. In 1936 Antioch had a few houses, a church, the Antioch and Crow cemeteries, and a one-teacher elementary school attended by twenty black pupils. By 1952 the Antioch school district had been consolidated with the Whitehouse Independent School District. In 1973 the church, the cemeteries, a scattered collection of dwellings, and a water tank remained at the site. The community was still designated on maps in 1985. No population estimates were available in 2000.
