STONE CHIMNEY CREEK
STONE CHIMNEY CREEK. Stone Chimney Creek rises two miles west of Bullard in northwestern Cherokee County (at 32°08' N, 95°21' W) and runs four miles southwest to its mouth on Lake Palestine, just east of Farm Road 346 (at 32°05' N, 95°24' W). Before the construction of the lake in the early 1960s the creek ran seven miles to its mouth on the Neches River, three miles southwest of Pleasant Hill (at 32°05' N, 95°25' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loam that support grasses and mixed hardwoods and pines.
