TWIN BUTTES. Twin Buttes, two isolated elevations with precipitous sides, are south of U.S. Highway 67 and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway on the northern edge of the Twin Buttes Reservoir in northwestern Tom Green County (at 31°24' N, 100°33' W). They rise to a height of 2,193 feet, or over 200 feet above the surrounding terrain, which is flat with local shallow depressions and surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
