    Goose Creek, TX, by Bruce Martin

    Many Texas towns were named after people; or, former residences, as“New” Something-or-other; or, a land feature. In the case of GooseCreek, it was named for a nearby stream, a boat landing five milesfrom the nearest rail connection In 1915, following the discovery ofoil in the area, another community developed, called Old Town. Thatsame year, an explosion destroyed Old Town and the residents movedfurther inland and renamed the community Newtown. There were severalattempts to merge the adjoining “wild cat oil drilling” communities ofBaytown, Goose Creek, and Pelly. It was not until 1948 that thetri-cities were consolidated into what is now known as Baytown.
