Riggs Shcool House

Can any one tell me any thing about the old Riggs School House that was located some where in Lavaca County Texas, year’s ago? They held church services there before they built the Hope Baptist Church. The Hope Baptist Church was originally called Shiloh Baptist Church. This congregation was constituted in 1885 with eight charter members, who first met in the Riggs Schoolhouse. The exact location of the schoolhouse is unknown, except that it was in Lavaca County. The original members were: M. L. and M. Newsom, Daniel and Moneroy Fitch, J. L. and A. A. Moore, Adie Riggs and R. A. Anderson. They held worship services once a month and baptisms took place in Clark's Creek. If any one can tell me any thing about this I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
