Cave Creek was a small rural community ten miles north of Gatesville in northern Coryell County. It was nicknamed Peruna or Perunie after a patented medicine, high in alcohol content, which was sold at the general store. On paper the Cave Creek community had a post office called Peruna from July until October 1899, but the office was never in operation. The Cave Creek school had twenty-nine students and one teacher in 1904; it was consolidated with the White Hall school in 1929. The community was not shown on county highway maps in the 1980s.
