Colston Community

The Colston Community was located about five miles north-northeast of Loving, in northeast Young County. It was named for J.W. Colston, who was at one time Young County Commissioner of Precinct # 4.

At one time Colston had a community school.

There were two school sites, the first located on the Sylphia Tynes Survey, Abstact No. 274, about one-half mile south of a tract of land known as the G. W. Hoak land.

The last site was near the northwest corner of an 80 acre tract of land out of the Sylphia Tynes Survey, Abstract No. 274, known as the L. R. Drum land.

It appears there might be another Colston school site, but no information as to where it might have been has been found in County records.

Today nothing remains of this community.
