AVINGER, TEXAS. Avinger is on the Louisiana and Arkansas railway at the junction of State highways 49 and 155, eight miles southeast of Hughes Springs in southwestern Cass County. Hickory Hill, a settlement that began in the early 1840s, was located a mile south of the site of Avinger. The town people are proud of its long history in Texas, its local shops, its highly-rated school system and winning teams, and its 5-star restaurant, the 5-D Cattle Company and Meat Market. Avinger participates in the Wildflower Trails of Texas Festival and in its "Hot Shot" competition.
