History

Grape Creek CDP is on Grape Creek just north of U.S. Highway 87 and the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway in north central Tom Green County. The area was populated as early as 1858, when the Butterfield Overland Mail established a Grape Creek station on the east bank of the east fork of Grape Creek near the present-day community. [1] The community was founded before 1900. In 1901 the community had a school for twenty-six pupils and one teacher, and by 1934 it had three elementary schools and a high school. State highway maps in 1936 showed the school, a church, a nearby cemetery, and scattered dwellings in the community. By the 1980s the Grape Creek-Pulliam School was in operation, and the area had become the site of a new subdivision known as Grape Creek Community.
