EIGHT MILE CREEK. Eight Mile Creek rises just west of Scottsville in east central Harrison County (at 32°33' N, 94°15' W) and runs southwest for nineteen miles to its mouth on the Sabine River, just north of the Panola county line (at 32°20' N, 94°21' W). It passes through an area of nearly level to hilly terrain surfaced by loamy and clayey soils that support dense patches of pine and hardwood trees along its banks. The land is used predominantly for agriculture.
