MUSTANG CREEK (Freestone County). Mustang Creek, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, rises in southern Freestone County (at 31°34' N, 96°00' W) nine miles southeast of Dew and runs southwest for six miles to its mouth (at 31°30' N, 95°59' W) on Buffalo Creek, in Leon County four miles east of Buffalo. It traverses flat land with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The area is used primarily as dry cropland and as forest.
