MESQUITE CREEK (BOSQUE COUNTY)
MESQUITE CREEK (Bosque County). Mesquite Creek rises 3½ miles northwest of Morgan in northern Bosque County (at 32°04' N, 97°39' W). Intermittent for half its length, the stream follows a generally easterly course for ten miles to its mouth on the Brazos River and Lake Whitney (at 32°02' N, 97°29' W). Mesquite Creek served as a minor focus of Bosque County settlement between the 1850s and the 1880s when Powelldale, a community centered on the homes of two early residents and a dam across the creek, developed 1½ miles above the stream's mouth.
