CRACKER'S BEND, TEXAS. Cracker's Bend was between Nogalus Prairie and Druso near the Houston county line in northern Trinity County. The community was first settled before 1900 and at one time had a mill and a number of houses. After World War II most of its residents moved away, and in the early 1990s only a few scattered houses remained.
