Christine, Texas. Christine is located ten miles south of Jourdanton in south central Atascosa County. It was founded in October 1909 as one of two towns promoted by developer C. F. Simmons. The towns were named after his daughters, Christine and Imogene. The community of Imogene never went beyond the planning stages, but by 1910 Christine had a post office, two hotels, a cafe, and a department store.

Simmons also built the Artesian Belt Railroad to Christine from McDonna. A school that was big enough for three teachers and both a Methodist and Baptist churches were added in 1911. By 1913 the school had 141 students.

Agriculture was a big form of economy and business for the area. Crops included lettuce, honey, and cattle also provided for much of the economic growth.

In the early 1980s the Atascosa Mining Company and the San Miguel Power Plant were located there. In 1988 the population was 381, and one retail business was listed. Today in Christine the population is up to a record 5,068 residents.
