Buck Creek is an unincorporated census-designated place in Washington Township, Tippecanoe County, in the U.S. state of Indiana.[3]

It is part of the Lafayette, Indiana Metropolitan Statistical Area.


Buck Creek was originally called Transitville.[4]

A post office was established under the name Transitville in 1858, and was renamed Buck Creek in 1885. As of July 2016, it remains in operation.[5]


Buck Creek sits at the intersection of Tippecanoe County Road 750 East and a northeast-southwest Norfolk Southern railroad line between the cities of Lafayette and Delphi. The creek for which Buck Creek is named originates 6.5 miles (10.5 km) east in Carroll County near Ockley, flows westward along the northern edge of the community, and meets the Wabash River approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) to the west.


Public education for residents of Buck Creek is provided by the Tippecanoe School Corporation.[6]
