HARRIET CREEK. Harriet Creek rises three miles northwest of Rhome in southeastern Wise County (at 33°06' N, 97°26' W) and runs southeast for ten miles to its mouth on Elizabeth Creek, nearly four miles south of Justin in Denton County (at 33°01' N, 97°18' W). The stream traverses rolling prairie, surfaced by shallow, stony clay loams that support juniper, oak, and a variety of grasses. For most of the county's history the Harriet Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
