ENON, TEXAS (Houston County).

Enon, a farming community 2 miles east of Grapeland on Farm Road 227 in north central Houston County, grew up around a school established there in 1883. In 1897 its school had an enrollment of fifty-one. By the mid-1930s Enon had two churches, a cemetery, and a number of houses.

After World War II most of its residents moved away, and by the mid-1960s the community was no longer shown on highway maps. In the early 1990s only a few scattered houses remained in the area.
