Doctors Creek

Doctors Creek was a school community on Doctors Creek 1½ miles northwest of Cooper and just south of Price in central Delta County. The earliest settlers, including I. N. Gray, J. A. Good, Volney Rattan, B. F. Hunt, and J. M. Cannon, arrived in 1882 and soon established the one-room Doctors Creek School with Mrs. Cannon as the teacher. In 1905 the community school enrolled forty-four students and employed one teacher. Maps for 1936 did not name the community, but showed the school, a church, and a cluster of dwellings at the intersection of two dirt roads. The Doctors Creek school closed in 1949 when it was consolidated into the Cooper Independent School District. The settlement no longer appeared on maps in 1964.
