HORNE BRANCH. Horne Branch rises two miles northeast of Woodbury in north central Hill County (at 32°05' N, 97°13' W) and runs south for five miles to its mouth on Aquilla Creek, two miles southwest of Woodbury (at 32°01' N, 97°15' W). It traverses generally flat to low-rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support oak and juniper trees, scrub brush, and cacti. The area has served as range and crop land.
