Calf Creek Cemetery
The most exciting thing that happened in Calf Creek, Texas was decades before its founding. Of Texas Revolution fame, James Bowie and ten friends fought off an overwhelming number of indigenous warriors in 1831. Five years later, Bowie would find himself surrounded and outnumbered again, except at the Alamo.
A Centennial Marker about a mile south of the Calf Creek Cemetery commemorates the 1831 battle.
Pro-tip: If you travel out to Calf Creek, all that's left of the schoolhouse is its foundation, so you'll only be able to get photos of the cemetery.
