VANALL, TEXAS. Vanall was a dispersed rural church community near the St. Louis Southwestern Railway and the intersection of State Highway 19 and Farm Road 2752, two miles north of Athens in north central Henderson County. The 1936 county highway map showed a church and scattered dwellings at the townsite. By 1987, however, nothing was shown at the site. No population figures were available for Vanall.
