COTTONWOOD CREEK (FREESTONE COUNTY)

COTTONWOOD CREEK (Freestone County). Cottonwood Creek rises less than a mile west of Fairfield in central Freestone County (at 31°43' N, 96°11' W) and runs northeast and then southeast for twenty miles to its mouth on Tehuacana Creek, four miles northeast of Young (at 31°54' N, 96°05' W). The creek traverses flat to rolling prairies with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support hardwoods, pines, conifers, and grasses. The area is primarily forest and dry cropland.
