HONEY CREEK (Hunt County). Honey Creek rises 4½ miles southwest of Wolfe City in northern Hunt County (at 33°18' N, 96°07' W) and runs southeast for 6½ miles to its mouth on the South Sulphur River, 3½ miles northwest of Neylandville (at 33°15' N, 96°02' W). The stream, which frequently floods, traverses generally flat terrain with clayey or loamy soils, and its banks are heavily wooded in its lower reaches. The area was not a site of early settlement and was still sparsely settled in the 1980s. The creek was named in the early 1850s for the abundance of honey trees in the area.
