RED CREEK, TEXAS. Red Creek was a dispersed rural community on the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railway and Red Creek, four miles northeast of San Angelo in north central Tom Green County. The local school had eleven pupils and one teacher in 1900 and fifty-six students by 1933. In the 1980s the school remained, but the community no longer appeared on state highway maps.
