HISTORY: Handbook of Texas Online: "Development began in the 1970's, and by the early 1980's Woodcreek had a country club and 18-hole golf course. Citizens incorporated in the mid-1980s and established a mayor and council form of government. By that time construction slowed considerably due to the downturn in the state economy, but by the 1990's the community was recovering, and the population showed steady growth."

This historic Trinity Aquifer natural spring known as Jacob's Well has the longest underwater cave in Texas and is a favorite swimming hole. Jacob's Well flows into Cypress Creek 3 mi NW of Wimberley near Woodcreek. It flows from an inclined shaft 40 meters deep along a fault line in the Edwards Plateau. In the past the 3 meter width of the shaft and the multi-chambered cave at its bottom attracted scuba divers. The well claimed several lives and has been closed to diving. In 1948 Woodcreek properties made the well pond a part of its resort development. Jacob's Well and its watery cave figure as an important locale in Stephen Harrigan's 1984 novel of that name.
