BLAIR CREEK (FRANKLIN COUNTY)
BLAIR CREEK (Franklin County). Blair Creek rises eight miles southwest of Mount Vernon in southwestern Franklin County (at 33°05' N, 95°15' W) and flows south for three miles to its mouth, on Lake Cypress Springs. The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. Upstream, the terrain is gently undulating to rolling with a loamy surface; downstream, the soils are sandy. The area is heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating. The stream was probably named for James Blair, who patented land near its mouth.
