According to Vol. I of Lee County History, the community was Cole Springs, and there was a Baptist Church there by 1854. Cole Springs had 48 eligible students in a school census of 1898, and school was held in the church building built in 1879 which burned about 1901. The church was rebuilt and school continued in it until a school building was erected in 1913 a mile or more west of the church, on land donated by E. C. Burroughs out of the T. H. Morrison Survey. Cole Springs was about 4 miles west of Tanglewood on County Road 419.
