KIMBRO CREEK. Kimbro Creek rises seven miles southwest of Center in southwestern Shelby County (at 31°42' N, 94°14' W) and runs south for six miles to its mouth on Odell Creek (at 31°38' N, 94°14' W). It crosses nearly level to moderately steep terrain, surfaced by sandy, clayey, and loamy soils that support dense woods of pines and hardwoods.
