FILIBUSTER CREEK. Filibuster Creek, formerly known as Caddo Creek, rises in the southeast corner of Young County (at 33°03' N, 98°26' W) and runs south for about 3½ miles to its mouth on the Brazos River (at 32°59' N, 98°27' W). The stream, fed by Caddo Springs, traverses an area of rolling hills where clay and sandy loams support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses. Caddo Indian villages existed in the area in the mid-1800s; hence the early name of the stream.
