History in a Pecan Shell

Grape Creek is on Grape Creek and the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway in north central Tom Green County. It was founded before 1900. In 1901 the community had a school for twenty-six pupils and one teacher, and by 1934 it had three elementary schools and a high school. State highway maps in 1936 showed the school, a church, a nearby cemetery, and scattered dwellings in the community. By the 1980s the Grape Creek-Pulliam School was in operation, and the area had become the site of a new subdivision known as Grape Creek Community. In 2000 the population was 3,138.
