VILLAGE CREEK (Hardin County). Village Creek rises in northern Hardin County (at 30°30' N, 94°26' W) one mile northwest of Village Mills. Formed by the junction of Big Sandy and Kimball creeks, Village Creek flows in a southeasterly course for forty-one miles to its mouth (at 30°14' N, 94°07' W) on the Neches River eight miles north of Beaumont. A section of the creek near its source is also part of the Big Thicket National Preserve.
