Hilburn was just west of State Highway 16 and six miles south of Poteet in central Atascosa County. The community was named for Richardson Hilburn, a prominent local citizen who served on the county's first grand jury. In 1904 the Hilburn school had sixty-nine students and two teachers. It was consolidated with the Jourdanton schools in the mid-1920s. In 1936 Hilburn had a number of scattered dwellings. By the late 1980s only a cemetery remained at the site.
