HONEY GROVE CREEK. Honey Grove Creek rises just north of the city limits of Honey Grove in east central Fannin County (at 33°35' N, 95°56' W) and runs northwest for 10½ miles to its mouth on Bois d'Arc Creek, just south of Coffee Mill Lake (at 33°43' N, 95°58' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses generally flat land surfaced with clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. For most of the county's history the Honey Grove area has been used as crop and range land.
