LITTLE TEHUACANA CREEK. Little Tehuacana Creek rises a mile north of Cotton Gin in western Freestone County (at 31°41' N, 96°22' W) and runs northeast for thirteen miles to its mouth on Tehuacana Creek, two miles south of Streetman (at 31°50' N, 96°19' W). The stream crosses flat and rolling prairies with local shallow depressions. Soils consist of clay and sandy loams that support hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The area is used primarily for dryland farming and as forest.
