San Jose

San Jose is on Farm Road 2295 ten miles east of Benavides in east central Duval County. It was founded prior to 1906; that year twenty-eight pupils attended the San Jose school. The school was still in operation in the late 1940s, when San Jose also had one business establishment, but had been consolidated with the San Diego Independent School District by 1955. By the late 1960s the community had only scattered dwellings and a church. In the late 1980s the population of San Jose was an estimated twenty-five. In 1990 through 2000 the population was fifteen.
