PECAN CREEK (HILL COUNTY)
PECAN CREEK (Hill County). Pecan Creek rises in northeastern Hill County (at 32°04' N, 97°03' W) seven miles northeast of Hillsboro and runs southeast for thirteen miles to its mouth (at 31°59' N, 96°53' W) on White Rock Creek, three miles northeast of Malone. The stream is dammed in its extreme upper reaches. It traverses an area of rolling prairies, surfaced by shallow to deep expansive clays and clay and sandy loams that support oak, juniper, and water-tolerant hardwoods. Historically the Pecan Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
