TRIMMER CREEK. Trimmer Creek, also called Trimmier Creek, rises a mile south of Killeen in southwestern Bell County (at 31°03' N, 97°43' W) and runs southeast for 6½ miles, through southwestern Bell County, to its mouth on Stillhouse Hollow Lake, four miles south of Killeen (at 31°01' N, 97°40' W). The creek, presumably named for Thomas Trimmier, an early settler in the area, flows through nearly level to sloping and undulating to rolling terrain surfaced by gravelly, loamy, and clayey soils used predominantly for agriculture.
