HOLMAN CREEK. Holman Creek rises two miles southeast of the community of Cotton Gin in western Freestone County (at 31°41' N, 96°20' W) and runs southeast for 10½ miles to its confluence with Chambers Creek to form Big Creek, 2½ miles southeast of Browns Lake (at 31°33' N, 96°19' W). Holman Creek is dammed near its source to form Teague City Lake. The creek traverses flat to rolling prairie surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support hardwoods, mesquite, conifers, and grasses. The area is primarily dry cropland and forest.
