INDIAN CREEK (COMAL COUNTY)
INDIAN CREEK (Comal County). Indian Creek rises near Anhalt in southwestern Comal County (at 29°49' N, 98°29' W) and runs southeast for 7½ miles to its mouth on Cibolo Creek, about a mile north of the point where U.S. Highway 281 crosses Cibolo Creek (at 29°44' N, 98°27' W). It traverses an area of the Balcones Escarpment characterized by steep slopes and limestone benches that give a stairstep appearance to the landscape. Soil in the area is generally dark, calcareous stony clay and clay loam with rock outcroppings, and vegetation consists primarily of live oak and Ashe juniper woods. In the 1860s a German farming community called the Krause settlement, later Anhalt, took root along the upper reaches of Indian Creek.
