Valley View

Valley View is a community at the intersection of State Highway 158 and Farm Road 2111, six miles northwest of Ballinger in Runnels County. The Pearce School was built in the area in 1887, but the community name Valley View originated when a Baptist church by that name organized in the school in 1908. A schoolhouse was built nearby the next year and called Valley View. The Pearce and Valley View schools merged in 1920 to establish Hagen School, named after the first superintendent. Local resident J. A. Patterson helped bring about the moving of a Runnels City church building to Valley View about 1917. This church consolidated with the Barnett Church in 1946 under the name Valley View. The 1980 county highway map indicated one business and a church at the townsite. The population was twenty-two in 2000.
