Nile is an abandoned ghost town in Milam County, Texas, nine miles west of Rockdale,[1] and is named after the river in Egypt, the Nile River.[2] 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.[3]
