TEHUACANA CREEK (Limestone County). Tehuacana Creek rises in Tehuacana in northeastern Limestone County (at 31°43' N, 96°32' W) and flows northeast for forty-two miles to its mouth on the Trinity River, fourteen miles northeast of Fairfield in Freestone County (at 31°50' W, 95°59' W). The terrain through which the creek passes is generally flat with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwood, conifers, and grasses.
