Shiloh

Shiloh is at the intersection of Farm roads 112 and 486, twelve miles southeast of Taylor in southeastern Williamson County. In 1856 a Baptist church was founded not far from the site, and a schoolhouse, called Eckman School, was built near the church before 1892. The Eckman School had seventy-three pupils in 1903 and was consolidated with the Taylor system in 1949. The church was moved in 1908 to the present site of the community. Shiloh also had a store, which closed in the late 1960s. Shiloh Baptist Church received a historical marker in 1968. The community consisted of a church and a collection of scattered residences in 2000.
