MCNEIL CREEK. McNeil Creek rises four miles northeast of McNeil in southeastern Caldwell County (at 29°44' N, 97°33' W) and runs southwest for seven miles to its mouth on Plum Creek, three miles east of Luling (at 29°40' N, 97°36' W). The area is flat to rolling prairie with local escarpments, surfaced by fine, sandy loams that support hardwood forests. The stream may have been named for Hector McNeil, an original grantee of land in the area.
