    History in a Pecan Shell

    Named after the creek of the same name, Nickel Creek (the town) has no 19th Century history. It wasn’t until the late 1940s when the town appeared. The population peaked in the late 1960s when it was reported that 16 people lived here. The town once had a motel in its heyday, but it has since closed. The population was given as two in 2005.
