Blaine was a farming community thirty-three miles southeast of Canton in southeastern Van Zandt County. A Blaine post office was established in 1893 and discontinued in 1907. A black school established at the site by 1890 reached an enrollment of seventeen in 1903. At its height Blaine had a black Methodist church, but the community never appeared on state highway maps and had no recorded population estimates.

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.
