BULLARD CREEK (Fannin County). Bullard Creek rises a mile southeast of Dodd City in central Fannin County (at 33°35' N, 96°04' W) and runs north for 9½ miles, passing beneath the Missouri Pacific railroad bridge just east of the city limits of Dodd City before reaching its mouth on Bois d'Arc Creek, two miles southeast of Lamasco (at 33°39' N, 96°03' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat to rolling land surfaced by clays, clay loams, and sandy loams. Mesquite, conifers, and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses grow throughout the area. For most of the county's history the Bullard Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
