Antioch

Antioch was ten miles northeast of Canton in northeast Van Zandt County. By 1890 it had a school that reached an enrollment of sixty-two in 1905 and was consolidated with the Grand Saline Independent School District by the 1950s. In 1936 a school and church remained at the site, but by 1965 the community had disappeared.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
