History in a Pecan Shell

The town had a population large enough to support a student body of 86 students in 1894.

The town stopped appearing on maps in the 1970s and the school had been consolidated with the Waxahachie ISD in the 1950s. Prior to that they had enjoyed a population of 80 (1947).

There are three other Buena Vistas listed in the Handbook of Texas and all have either disappeared or have been absorbed into larger communities. Further information can be gotten from the Ellis County Historical Society in Waxahachie.
Texas Escapes, in its purpose to preserve historic, endangered and vanishing Texas, asks that anyone wishing to share their local history, stories, and vintage/historic photos of their town, please contact us.
