PULLIAM CREEK. Pulliam Creek rises two miles west of State Highway 55 and nine miles south of Rock Springs in east central Edwards County (at 29°54' N, 100°11' W) and runs southeast for twenty-nine miles to its mouth on the West Nueces River, a half mile north of Camp Wood and two miles southeast of Barksdale (at 29°41' N, 100°01' W). It is intermittent in its upper reaches. The local terrain consists of steep slopes and benches, surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses. The creek was named for N. B. Pulliam, an early-day rancher in the area.
