CHAPMAN DRAW. Chapman Draw rises nine miles northeast of Menard in northeastern Menard County (at 31°01' N, 99°41' W) and runs southwest for nine miles to its mouth on the San Saba River, five miles east of Menard (at 30°55' N, 99°43' W). The surrounding flat to rolling terrain has local deep dissections and is surfaced by shallow and stony to moderately deep clay loams that support oak, juniper, mesquite, and grasses.
