PLUM CREEK (Lipscomb County). Plum Creek rises in south central Lipscomb County (at 36°04' N, 100°19' W) twenty miles southwest of Higgins and runs north for nine miles to its mouth (at 36°14' N, 100°15' W) on Wolf Creek, two miles east of Lipscomb. The first headquarters of what became the Box T Ranch was established on Plum Creek in 1878. The creek traverses terrain that varies from flat to rolling, with some local escarpments. Native vegetation consists of mesquite and grasses in deep, fine, sandy loams.
