High Hill, Texas

HISTORY

Welcome to High Hill, Texas

Location Of The First Cottonseed Oil Mill In Texas.

High Hill, Texas is located in Fayette County on FM 2672. Immigrants from Austria and Germany settled in High Hill in search of religious freedom and new opportunities. Someone suggested that they choose a “high hill” type of name to remind them of the mountains they left behind in the old country. Unfortunately, the farmers of High Hill didn’t want the railroad to come through, so the community never grew.
