WALKERS CREEK (MILAM COUNTY)

WALKERS CREEK (Milam County). Walkers (Walker, Walker's) Creek rises a half mile southwest of Burlington in eastern Milam County (at 31°00' N, 97°00' W) and runs southeast for thirteen miles to its mouth on the Little River, four miles northeast of Cameron (at 30°54' N, 96°55' W). The surrounding flat to rolling terrain is surfaced by dark, calcareous clays that support mesquite, cacti, and grasses. Walkers Creek was named for W. H. Walker, a county judge who had land on the creek in 1836.
