History in a Pecan Shell

Organized in 1848, the community is thought to be named after local resident Henry Creagle. The town had a church and cemetery as early as 1890 and a school with an enrollment of 61 in 1904.

Creagleville managed to live through the 1930s when it was reported they had the school, a church, two cemeteries, and several dwellings. No mention was made of businesses.

The school consolidated with the Grand Saline ISD in the 1950s. Today only the cemeteries are shown on TXDoT county maps of Van Zandt County.
