"The old school and cemetery are located on the southeast corner of FM 717
and CR 117.
The church/school house is located on the Eastland County
and Stephens County lines. The building literally sits on the line. One half in
Eastland County, one half in Stephens.
There is only one house near
the church (across the road), a couple currently lives there. So I would call
the population 2.
The Cemetery is on the Eastland County side. My family
recently sold the ranch that was just behind the old town." - Shanon Hunt,

Georgia A. Barnes was interred on William Nolen's land in 1878, there was a one-room
schoolhouse on this site. A three-year-old girl was buried here in 1884, and in
1886 William Nolen donated two of his 160 acres for the formal establishment of
a school and cemetery for the area later known as the Bullock community. In 1918
the cemetery and school property were leased for drilling, but the resulting well
did not produce. More land was donated as needed, including the site of the old
oil well. The Bullock Cemetery Association was formed in the 1960s. Bullock Cemetery
continues to serve the area.
