Blackjack

Blackjack is just south of Lake Tyler off Farm Road 346 in southern Smith County. It is bordered on the east by Prairie Creek. The settlement, only a half mile east of the St. Louis and Southwestern Railway (originally the International-Great Northern), had a school, two churches, and a small collection of farms in 1936. By 1952 its school had been consolidated with the Whitehouse Independent School District. In 1973 the center of the scattered farm community was the New Canaan Church and Cemetery, and in 1981 Blackjack was identified as a church community.
