LITTLE BLUFF CREEK. Little Bluff Creek rises one-half mile northeast of State Highway 29 in western Mason County (at 30°51' N, 99°24' W) and runs south for ten miles until it joins Big Bluff Creek 2½ miles south of U.S. Highway 377 (at 30°44' N, 99°24' W). Rising on the eastern edge of the Edwards Plateau, the creek crosses an area of the Llano basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain surfaced by deep to shallow sandy and clayey loams that support grasses and open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper. Families began to settle up and down the creek around 1855. The settlements along Big Bluff, Little Bluff, and Honey creeks eventually became known as Streeter.
