NICHOLSON CREEK. Nicholson Creek rises (at 33°04' N, 100°29' W) near the Double Mountains in southwestern Stonewall County and runs south for eight miles to its mouth (at 32°59' N, 100°26' W) on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River near the Fisher county line. The local terrain is severely eroded and is surfaced by sparse silt loams that support mesquite and grasses. The creek was named for a cowboy on the Two Circle Bar Ranch.
