WALLER CREEK (Cooke County). Waller Creek rises seven miles northwest of Muenster in western Cooke County (at 33°42' N, 97°28' W) and runs south for five miles, through a dam, to its mouth on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River (at 33°38' N, 97°28' W). The surrounding low rolling to flat terrain is surfaced by sandy to clay loams that support scrub brush and some hardwood trees near the banks of the creek. For most of Cooke County's history, the Waller Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
