PEPPER CREEK. Pepper Creek rises a mile northwest of Temple in north central Bell County (at 31°10' N, 97°22' W) and runs southwest for ten miles through central Bell County to its mouth on the Leon River, just east of Belton (at 31°04' N, 97°26' W). The creek, named for William W. Pepper, who was granted land on its banks, flows through nearly level to sloping terrain characterized by clayey soils used predominantly for agricultural purposes.
