ELM CREEK, TEXAS. Elm Creek was a school community on Farm Road 467 about six miles south of Seguin in southern Guadalupe County. In 1904 the community had two one-teacher schools for sixty-eight black students and two one-teacher schools for 104 white students. There were a few scattered houses and a cemetery in the area in 1946; by the mid-1980s only the cemetery marked the community on county highway maps.
