Live Oak was on Farm Road 462 a mile east of the Taylor oilfield and six miles south of Hondo in south central Medina County. The Live Oak School, constructed in 1907, employed one teacher for twelve students that year. In 1923 the school had two teachers and two buildings, one for White children and the other for Mexican children. Both schools were of wood-frame construction.
