    Default Dry Zulch, Texas

    I found the listing on this supposed place on the site and was intrigued by it. The info given is from one person and is very vague, but he claims the location of this town could be found on older Texas maps. I looked through about 10 different ones from 1917 to the late 1970's and was not able to find a town called Dry Zulch anywhere between Dallas and Commerce as the article says.

    However, there is a town in south Texas near College Station named simply Zulch which is infact now a ghost town. The article needs to be changed, a town named "Dry Zulch" does not exist in any record that I can find.

    There is a town east of Bryan, Texas on Hwy 190 named North Zulch. Is there also a town named Zulch? I have also tried to find Dry Zulch and have had no success.........Speedy

    According to this there was a town called Zulch, but was relocated to what is now North Zulch. No mention of a "Dry Zulch" anywhere.

    Default Dry Zulch Texas

    As far as I know,there were
    two towns,Zulch and North Zulch.There was never a town named Dry Zulch.
    The Texas Handbook Online lists lots of people and towns in Texas,and may have the answer you seek.

    I do know there is a town called Gun Barrel City,also a BugTussle,TinTop,DimeBox and New Dimebox,and several other unusual names in the state.

    I actually drove the suggested route and found nothing like the description. The author did say, I believe, he was a young runaway and on foot. I assume he is mistaken about name and or location. You are right it should be corrected/deleted.

    Default Dry Zulch,Tx

    Speedy,where is Scrappin Valley and Devil's Pocket,Tx located?
    I think I have heard of the first town,but not the second.
    There is a Purgatory,Tx.It's near San Marcos. You can get to it by going FM 306 and head towards Canyon Lake.You'll see a sign for the road and you make a right hand turn onto the road. The town or what is left of it is near the junction with I think Texas Hwy 12.
    You're in the area of the town when you see on your left the cemetery called Hugo.
