WEIRS CREEK. Weirs Creek, dammed in its upper reaches and located entirely within north central Montgomery County, rises one mile north of Willis (at 30°27' N, 95°29' W) and flows eight miles southwest, crossing U.S. Highway 45 into Conroe Lake at Willis oilfield (at 30°28' N, 95°31' W). The creek was named for William Weir who received a grant of land on the stream on August 17, 1835. Weirs Creek flows through flat terrain with local shallow depressions where water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses cover clay loam and sandy loam soils.
