GRINDSTONE CREEK. Grindstone Creek rises two miles southwest of Peaster in western Parker County (at 32°51' N, 97°53' W) and runs south for just over sixteen miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, fourteen miles southwest of Weatherford (at 32°39' N, 98°00' W). The stream traverses an area of timber and open prairie with gently undulating to steep terrain surfaced by shallow to deep soils that vary from sandy to clayey. For most of the county's history the Grindstone Creek area has been used as rangeland. In the 1920s mineral production was briefly important.
