southeast of Carlton
and extends northeast to the North Bosque River near the site of Old
Hico. US 281 crosses Honey Creek six miles south of Hico.
Early settlements in northern Hamilton County were on the banks of Honey
"Honey Creek heads southeast of Carlton.
Highway 66 (US 281) crosses it six miles south of Hico. The
Fairy and Hico road crosses it at Old Hico where there
is a deep hole of water known as Blue Hole. Crockett Hendrix
and his daughter were drowned there in 1904 when they drove into the creek
to water their horses. It empties into the Bosque River between
Hico and Iredell."--Doris LaRue Stapleton and
Capt. C. E. Horton.
