Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Nile is an abandoned ghost town in Milam County, Texas, nine miles west of Rockdale, and is named after the river in Egypt, the Nile River. The population peaked at thirty-five in 1896 when it had two cottin gins, and a general store. The school, which had forty-three students in 1903, consolidated with Thorndale in 1946. Today, nothing, not even a modest cemetery, remains in Nile.
