INDIAN CREEK (Washington County). Indian Creek, also known as Walnut Creek, rises two miles west of Burton in southwestern Washington County (at 30°10' N, 96°39' W) and runs southeast for ten miles to its mouth on East Mill Creek, five miles west of Brenham (at 30°08' N, 96°30' W). It crosses gently rolling terrain surfaced by fine sandy loam that supports scrub brush, grasses, and pine and hardwood forest.
