Spring Creek Township is the southwest corner of Logan County. There is no information available at this time to indicate how it was named.

There are no active communities in the township, however, the town of Cashion (Kingfisher County) lies just to the west of sections 6 and 7.

Former communities that were once in the township include Andersonville, which at one time was in the southeast part of the township, but the exact location is unknown. Anna was in section 14, Four Corners was in the northwest corner of section 22, Spring was in the northwest corner of section 26, and West was in section 27. The community of Lockridge was located in the southwest corner of section 31. Lockridge took it name from the first letters of Logan, Oklahoma, Canadian and Kingfisher counties, which all have a common corner there, and from the fact that it was located on a ridge.

There are no known cemeteries in the township. The Cashion cemetery is just west of sections 6/7 in Kingfisher county, and the Lockridge & Christner is in Oklahoma county just south of section 31. At one time, there was a cemetery just west of section 31 in Kingfisher county, but a private residence now stands where it was located, and nothing more is known about it.

Two railroads once passed through the township. The Guthrie and Western ran through the north part of the township to Cashion, where it linked with the Guthrie and Kingfisher. It is said that there was no turnaround at Cashion, so a train that ran from Guthrie to Cashion had to back up all the way back to Guthrie.

The second line was the St. Louis, El Reno and Western which ran from El Reno through Lockridge and Four Corners to Guthrie.

Four schools once stood in the township, and they are listed below:
