ADAMS BRANCH

ADAMS BRANCH. Adams Branch rises six miles northwest of Brownwood in central Brown County (at 31°47' N, 98°59' W) and runs southeast for seven miles through Brownwood to its mouth on Pecan Bayou (at 31°42' N, 98°57' W) just east of the city. It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The creek is named for Ichabod Adams, who settled on the stream prior to the Civil War.
