THREEMILE CREEK (DEWITT COUNTY)
THREEMILE CREEK (DeWitt County). Threemile Creek, also known as Three Mile Coleto Creek, rises four miles southwest of Cuero in central DeWitt County (at 29°02' N, 97°21' W) and runs southeast for three miles to its mouth on Fivemile Creek (at 29°00' N, 97°19' W). It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by a mixture of sand, gravel, and mud that supports water-tolerant hardwoods. The stream was named for its distance from the courthouse door at Clinton, then the county seat.
