Dillon is a ghost town in Hopkins County, Texas, located four miles south of Saltillo. The town was named after E. F. Dillon, who started operating the post office in his store in 1901. The post office closed in 1906, and in the mid-1930s the town disappeared from highway maps

The town became better known on the television series Friday Night Lights, starring Kyle Chandler as coach Eric Taylor. [1]
