Not all of the Carolina Creek Estates tracts back up to Carolina Creek.

Other Trinity Plantation favorites are the 9 hole golf course and community fishing pier off of the Trinity River.
Trinity Plantation is a mixture of mobile homes and traditionally built homes. A while (16 comments)

The Virtual Wall at Vietnam ~ Truly Amazing - 07/15/12 10:59 AM
I found this website to be both touching and interesting. Of course the first place I looked was Riverside, Texas, and I found no names listed. Then I remembered that Dorie said that the soldier may be listed under a larger, nearby town. Well of course... Riverside's population today is only 510. So I went to Huntsville (the largest city in Walker County) and found MANY who had served. Next, I looked up Trinity which is only 7 miles away from Riverside, but located in Trinity County. Trinity's current population is around 2700. There were 2 soldiers from Trinity. Vietnam (2 comments)
