Buena Vista was on FM Road 1446 (now Buena Vista Road) six miles west of Waxahachie and about half way between Waxahachie and Maypearl. Its name, Spanish for "good view" is derived from its hilltop location. By 1894, it had a school with eighty-six pupils. From 1915 to 1945, its school offered grades one through nine. In 1947, Buena Vista had a population of eighty, a church and a school. The school consolidated with Waxahachie School District in 1951. The town was no longer shown on county highway maps by the 1970s.
