Shiloh

Shiloh, on Farm Road 638 seven miles southeast of Dawson in southwestern Navarro County, was probably established before 1900. In the mid-1930s it had two churches, a school, a cemetery, and a number of houses. After World War II many of the residents moved away, but in the mid-1960s a church and cemetery were still in the area. In the early 1990s Shiloh was a dispersed rural community.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
