GRAPE CREEK, TEXAS (Borden County). Grape Creek was seven miles southwest of the site of what is now Gail in southwestern Borden County. The settlement grew up around a school that was established there about 1910. This school served the area until it was consolidated with the school in Gail in the early 1920s. Area residents included the Jackson, Rogers, and Cranfill families.
