Cave Creek

Cave Creek is a small rural community located on Farm Road 1631 about ten miles northeast of Fredericksburg in eastern Gillespie County. Settlement in the area of a stream called Cave Creek began in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Many residents were German farmers. St. Paul Lutheran Cemetery, also known as Cave Creek Cemetery, contains marked graves that date to 1884. Highway maps in the 1930s showed the cemetery, a church, and dwellings. Cave Creek and the cemetery were still identified on highway maps in 2000, but no population estimates were available.
