SILVER CREEK (Anderson County). Silver Creek rises (at 31°35' N, 95°25' W) just north of Mound City in southeastern Anderson County near the Houston county line. The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, runs southeast for eight miles through southeastern Anderson County and northeastern Houston County to its mouth on San Pedro Creek, 1½ miles southeast of Augusta (at 31°31' N, 95°19' W). The banks of the stream are heavily wooded in places with oak, hickory, gum, and pine trees, and the gently sloping to moderately steep terrain is surfaced by sandy, clayey, and loamy upland soils. The land is used predominantly for agriculture.
