CEDAR, TX (LIMESTONE COUNTY)
CEDAR, TEXAS (Limestone County). Cedar, in western Limestone County, was probably established in the 1870s. It grew up around a church and school built by freedmen from several nearby plantations (see RECONSTRUCTION). The community's school may have been the Cedar Creek school, which had thirty-six students and two teachers in 1896. The community was abandoned soon thereafter and was not shown on the 1948 county highway map.
