WASHBOARD CREEK. From its origin two miles northwest of the Mount Olive church and cemetery in northeastern Mills County (at 31°36' N, 98°31' W), Washboard Creek flows six miles northeast to join Cowhouse Creek in southwestern Hamilton County (at 31°40' N, 98°27' W). The creek flows through rolling limestone hills surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, mesquite, grasses, and live oak at an elevation of 1,600 to 1,480 feet above sea level.
