Bleiblerville is an unincorporated community in northern Austin County, Texas, United States. According to the Handbook of Texas, its population was 71 in 2000. It is located within the Greater Houston metropolitan area.


Bleiblerville was named for Robert Bleibler, a Swiss immigrant, who ran the general store, post office, and saloon. Bleibler opened the general store in the area in the late 1880s. The community grew rapidly with the influx of many German immigrants in the late nineteenth century, and its post office was established in 1891. The community expanded in the 1960s with the increase of oil drilling in the community, but has since declined.
