Shiloh is a ghost town in Houston County, Texas, United States, just off FM 2110. It was founded by Stephen F. Box in 1834. A local school was made in the 1850s. During the Civil War, the school was a draft post. After the Civil war, the town declined. By the 1930s Shiloh had a Church and a few scattered houses. In the 1960s, the church remained (as it still does today), as well as very scattered houses. In 1973, a historical marker was placed in the town. Today, only the Methodist church remains.
