SEYMOUR CREEK. Seymour Creek rises near Farm Road 422 four miles east of Seymour in central Baylor County (at 33°36' N, 99°11' W) and runs northwest, then southeast, through Seymour, to join the Brazos River just south of the city limits (at 33°34' N, 99°15' W). The creek is seven miles long. Springs found along the stream were early Indian camping sites. The area is flat with local shallow depressions and surfaced by clay and sandy loams. Vegetation consists of water-resistant hardwoods and grasses.
