CHARAMUSCA CREEK

CHARAMUSCA CREEK. Charamusca (Cheremusca) Creek rises seven miles northwest of Freer in northwestern Duval County (at 27°55' N, 98°44' W) and runs northwest for eighteen miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, in southeastern La Salle County (at 28°06' N, 98°50' W). Its name is Spanish for a type of twisted candy. The surrounding flat terrain has local shallow depressions and is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
