DEEP CREEK (BAYLOR COUNTY)
DEEP CREEK (Baylor County). Deep Creek rises just south of Farm Road 422 and the Lively community center five miles east of Seymour in central Baylor County (at 33°36' N, 99°11' W) and runs south-southeast for fifteen miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, six miles southwest of Westover in southeastern Baylor County (at 33°28' N, 99°05' W). It crosses rolling hills with clay and sandy soils that support primarily scrub brush and grasses. One source of Deep Creek is Shawver Springs, named for Robert Shawver, who built a dugout near the spring in 1880. By 1979 the spring flow had nearly stopped.
