Plum Creek is one mile south of Farm Road 489 and eleven miles southeast of Dew in southeast Freestone County. Abe Jones, a black man who had a gin and a store in the area, lived at Plum Creek. A church was organized in 1887, and in 1891 a school was started. In 1899 forty-eight Black and thirty-five White students were enrolled in separate Plum Creek schools. In the 1930s the community had a business, a church, a school, a cemetery, and a number of scattered dwellings. In the 1960s Brown Chapel, Trahin School, Plum Creek Cemetery, and a few scattered dwellings marked the site. By the late 1980s Plum Creek was no longer shown on maps.
