HONEY CREEK (Lavaca County). Honey Creek rises in a tank on the Lavaca-Colorado county line near Farm Road 155 five miles northeast of Sublime (at 29°32' N, 96°45' W) and runs southwest in Lavaca County for 6½ miles, passing through a wooded prairie area known locally as "the post oaks" before reaching its mouth on the Navidad River, two miles north of Sublime (at 29°30' N, 96°48' W). Where cleared and tended, the local sandy and loamy soils produce excellent pasture and crops of hay and corn. Much of the rolling land, however, is used as unimproved range and as wildlife habitat. During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the area was heavily settled, and cemeteries for the Keiler, Redus, Allen, Geiger, and Obelgoner families are located near the stream.
