County Line is a church and school community on Farm Road 2966 two miles east of Yantis in northwestern Wood County, near the Hopkins county line. A County Line school existed by 1905, when it had one teacher and twenty-eight students. In 1932 the County Line school district had thirty-nine students in eight grades. The 1947 discovery of the Yantis oilfield just to the east of County Line appeared to have no lasting effect on the community, and by the late 1950s it consisted of only a church and widely scattered dwellings along country roads. The 1988 county highway map showed a church at the site.
