CEDAR CREEK (Fayette County). Cedar Creek rises a mile southeast of the Cedar Grove Church in north central Fayette County (at 29°58' N, 96°50' W) and runs south for 7½ miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, just east of La Grange (at 29°54' N, 96°50' W). The local rolling terrain is surfaced by loose and gravelly sands and sandy and clay loams. Most of the local land is suitable for unimproved pasture. In the 1980s much of the area was dotted with gas and oil wells.
