Have any of you been to Elderville. It is in East Texas near Longview. I would love to see a web site of the area if anyone has one. Pictures if possible.

Thanks

Must be awfully small, I live in Smith County the adjoining county to Gregg County (Longview). Gregg County is small also. I thought I knew all about Texas especially East Texas but I have never heard of Elderville.

I don't think it exists as a town now. From web site on Gregg County:

ELDERVILLE, TEXAS. Elderville is off State Highway 322 just west of the Gregg County Airport in southeastern Gregg County. It was established in the late 1840s and named for one Colonel Brown, an early settler. Portions of the extended community were known at various times as Brown's Settlement, Brown's Bluff, or the Colonel Brown Community. A post office called Brown's Bluff opened there in 1874. Around 1875 its name was changed to Iron Bridge and in 1887 to Elderville. By 1890 the community had a steam gristmill, a cotton gin, three churches, two schools, a general store, and an estimated population of 200. By the early 1920s Elderville reported ninety-six inhabitants and four businesses. After World War IIqv much of the area became part of the Gregg County Airport. In the early 1990s Elderville was a dispersed rural community

Not too quiet, since it's on the edge of Gregg County Airport where jets can land.

If you have an interest in the Longview-Tyler area, there are still plenty of smaller, quiet communities to choose from.

Tyler is a small city (90,000-100,000 or so) with a big city feel. Lots of traffic in town, but nice areas at nearby lakes.

Longview is a bit smaller (80,000 or so) and feels smaller. More of the good ol' East texas accent. Would want to look on north side of town.

Many small towns in area that are close enough to shopping, but far enough from busy highways.

Look at Gilmer, Gladewater, Mineola, Lindale, Bullard, Canton, Terrell.
