YORK CREEK, TX

YORK CREEK, TEXAS. York Creek, also known as York Creek Ridge, was located on a hill above the intersection of York Creek and Farm Road 20 thirteen miles northeast of Seguin in northeastern Guadalupe County. In its early years the town centered around a school built in 1854 by German immigrants. York Creek post office opened in 1886, and in 1890 the town had a grocery store, a general store, a cotton gin, and twenty-five inhabitants. Two gins were in operation by 1896. The post office closed in 1906. By the 1940s the school and businesses were gone, and York Creek had a church, a cemetery, and a number of scattered dwellings. The church was still in existence in the 1980s.
