RIVER HILL, TEXAS. River Hill, at the junction of U.S. Highway 79 and Farm Road 123, eight miles northeast of Carthage in northeastern Panola County, was established before 1900. In the mid-1930s the community had several businesses, a church, a school, and a number of houses. After World War II the school was consolidated with Carthage school, but in the mid-1960s several stores and a church still remained in the area. In the early 1990s River Hill was a dispersed rural community.
