JOE BEATTY CREEK

JOE BEATTY CREEK. Joe Beatty Creek rises at the foot of the south bluff of Palo Duro Canyon in southwestern Armstrong County and runs northeast for two miles to join the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River. The stream was once part of the JA Ranch and was named for a JA cowboy. Charles Goodnight's Old Home Ranch was located in the vicinity.
