MILL CREEK (NACOGDOCHES COUNTY)
MILL CREEK (Nacogdoches County). Mill Creek, also known as Los Terreros Creek, rises four miles west of the Nacogdoches city limits in central Nacogdoches County (at 31°40' N, 94°44' W) and runs south for five miles to its mouth on Morral Bayou, just south of State Highway 21 (at 31°37' N, 94°44' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The stream was known to Spaniards as Los Terreros Creek and was the site of the mission of Nuestra Señora de la Purísima Concepción de los Hainais (later Nuestra Señora De La Purísima Concepción De Acuña Mission).
