Map of Medina County

Longview was a farming community near Live Oak Creek, two miles south of U.S. Highway 90 West, and four miles southwest of Hondo in central Medina County. In 1907 the Longview School had eighteen pupils and one teacher. During the 1920s the Longview community was occupied mostly by Mexican tenant farmers who worked fields of cotton. By 1923 the old box-style schoolhouse had two teachers.
