Rush Creek Community
Navarro County, Texas


Cities and Towns


Located fourteen miles southeast of Corsicana and two miles south of Kerens in Navarro County Texas. Rush Creek was established in the 1850s, and a post office operated there from 1858 to 1871. At its height just after the Civil War, Rush Creek consisted of a store, a gin, and a number of houses. It began to decline in the early 1870s, apparently because of the growth of nearby Wadeville, and by the mid 1870s Rush Creek had been abandoned.
