Honey Creek was organized in 1841 as a township in the northeastern corner of neighboring Clinton County. The township's early population tended to be politically Republican, so the Republican party in Howard County and the Democrats in Clinton County collaborated to have Honey Creek Township removed from Clinton and added in 1850 to Howard.
According to the 2010 census, the township has a total area of 14.72 square miles (38.1 km2), all land. The stream of Squirrel Creek runs through this township.
