Quicksand

Quicksand, also know as Quicksand Creek, is at the junction of State Highway 87 and Farm Road 1414, fifty-five miles northeast of Beaumont in central Newton County. Early settlers named the community after a nearby creek. Quicksand was thought to be the geographic center of the newly demarked Newton County and was made the first county seat. County officials held their first meetings at the home of Josephus S. Irvine , an early Texas settler and veteran of the battle of San Jacinto
