Small Town Salute

POSSUM WALK, Texas (KETK) – Possum Walk,  also known as Crete or East Prairie, is a farm town 11 miles outside of Groveton in Trinity County.

The town was established in 1870 and a school was built in 1884. The name was changed to Crete in 1902.

Although it was abandoned by 1990, an active Church of Christ remains.

Possum Walk is one of those places where most people drive past and are just oblivious to it’s existence, but the town has rich history, like many other places in East Texas.
