Sand Hill

Sand Hill (Sandhill), a farming community in northern Hopkins County fourteen miles northeast of Sulphur Springs and three miles east of Tira off Farm Road 1536, was settled before 1900. A public school was operating there by 1905, when it had an enrollment of about thirty. In 1928 the school was consolidated with that of Tira, but the building continued to be used for a time as a community center and church. In the mid-1930s Sand Hill had the former school building and a number of scattered houses. After World War II most of its residents moved away, and by the early 1960s all that remained was a few scattered houses. In the late 1980s Sand Hill was a dispersed rural community.
