HARRISON BAYOU

HARRISON BAYOU. Harrison Bayou, also known as Village Creek, rises two miles southeast of Scottsville in east central Harrison County (at 32°30' N, 94°13' W), and runs northeast for fifteen miles to its mouth on Caddo Lake, near the Longhorn Army Ammunition Plant (at 32°41' N, 94°07' W). Harrison Bayou was presumably named for Harrison County, which derived its name from Jonas Harrison. The surrounding gently undulating to hilly terrain is surfaced by loams and clays that support dense patches of pine and hardwood trees. The land is used predominantly for timber production and for agriculture.
