Montville was a community in northwestern Washington County. In 1836 Lydia A. McHenry and Mrs. David Ayres began one of the earliest Anglo-American schools in Texas at Montville; it was a girls' boarding school and boys' day school that operated until 1837. Asa Mitchell, one of the Old Three Hundred, was a Montville resident. In 1840 the community had a Republic of Texas post office. A United States post office opened at Montville on May 22, 1846; it was moved in February 1851 to Long Point.
