  • Notes 
    • Wolf Bayou (GNIS FID: 78797) is a populated place located within the Township of Healing Springs, a minor civil division (MCD) of Cleburne County.   The elevation of Wolf Bayou is 1,043 feet. Wolf Bayou appears on the Drasco U.S. Geological Survey Map. Cleburne County is in the Central Time Zone.   Wolf Bayou is 1,040 feet above sea level.


      ·   According to the 1895 Rand McNally Atlas, the estimated population in 1895: 75 people


      ·   From the 1895 Atlas, Wolf Bayou had a post office and no railroad service.


       


      Wolf Bayou is located on the Wolf Bayou Cutoff Road (Highway 90) near Concord (Cleburne County) and Drasco (Cleburne County). 


      According to local historian Louie Clark, French explorers called the local runoff-fed creek a “bayou,” and when the post office was established in 1851 the word “wolf” was added because the timberland along the creek was the home of many wolves. The area was sparsely populated by a few hunters and trappers by 1818. Even with the coming of the post office, not many lived in the area, and only gradually did the region increase in population. The creek later became popular with kayakers. The Old Cherokee Boundary Line goes through the northwestern part of Wolf Bayou and runs diagonally across Greers Ferry Lake.  The still-active post office is one of the oldest in the county.
