High Hill was once a community with it's future
assured. It was the only town in southern Fayette
County for years and was a stop on a transcontinental stage route.
The railroad had plans for High Hill - wanting to include it along its route between
Houston and San
Antonio. But the townspeople declined the railroad's offer and the town just
declined. The rails went in south of town and Schulenburg
was founded as a result.
