MUSTANG CREEK (Johnson County). Mustang Creek rises in central Johnson County (at 32°20' N, 97°18' W) six miles east of Cleburne and runs southwest for fourteen miles to its mouth (at 32°10' N, 97°23' W) on the Nolan River, in northwestern Hill County two miles north of Blum. It traverses flat to rolling prairie surfaced by dark, commonly calcareous clays that support mesquite trees, grasses, and cacti. The area has served as crop and range land.
