CROOKED CREEK (VAN ZANDT COUNTY)
CROOKED CREEK (Van Zandt County). Crooked Creek rises northeast of Myrtle Springs and just over a mile north of Interstate Highway 20 in northwestern Van Zandt County (at 32°37' N, 95°55' W) and runs northeast for almost nine miles to its mouth on Mill Creek, east of State Highway 19 and almost two miles northwest of Fruitvale (at 32°42' N, 95°50' W). Artifacts of the Caddo Indians have been found along the creek. It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clayey and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
