FLOWER HILL, TX (BASTROP COUNTY)
FLOWER HILL, TEXAS (Bastrop County). Flower Hill is three miles southeast of Smithville in southeastern Bastrop County. In 1907 it had a one-teacher school for fifty-four black students; the school was probably absorbed by the Smithville Independent School District shortly after the district's creation in 1921. In the 1940s a church and a few scattered houses marked the Flower Hill community on county highway maps, but by the 1980s only a cemetery remained there.
