COON CREEK (FAYETTE COUNTY)
COON CREEK (Fayette County). Coon Creek rises in open pastureland a half mile north of Warrenton in north central Fayette County (at 30°01' N, 96°44' W) and runs east for five miles to its mouth on Cummins Creek (at 30°00' N, 96°40' W). It crosses gently rolling terrain surfaced by shallow sandy loam that in the past has produced good crops of cotton and corn. Since the 1950s the land has been used primarily as pasture for cattle and horses. Halfway in its course the creek passes through a small flood-control pool, and near its mouth there is evidence of sand and gravel extraction.
