Pipe Creek, Texas. The Pipe Creek community is located about nine miles east of Bandera in eastern Bandera County. The town was founded about 1870 and was named for nearby Pipe Creek. The first settler of the community, Francis Marion Hodges, arrived in the area in 1868, and another settler, Oliver S. Shirley, arrived in 1870.

By the early 1880s a cotton gin and a gristmill were operating in the town, which had grown to about 100 residents. Its population consisted mostly of farmers and ranchers, who raised cotton, corn, cattle, and sheep.

A Methodist church was founded there in 1904, and in 1908 the first telephone line was installed in the general store. A second school, called the Deskin School, was formed in 1913. The population increased to 150 in 1941-about the time that electric service was introduced into the area.

Today the town consisted of construction, auto, and real estate businesses, as restaurants, a hardware store, a community center, and several churches. Many of the community residents commute to Bandera and San Antonio to work.
