WALNUT CREEK (Kaufman County). Walnut Creek rises a mile southwest of Ola in southeastern Kaufman County (at 32°33' N, 96°13' W) and runs southeast for 8½ miles, through flat to rolling terrain surfaced by shallow or stony soils that support oak, juniper, and some mesquite. For most of the county's history the Walnut Creek area has been used as range and crop land. Beginning in the 1930s cotton production in the area decreased and was replaced by cattle grazing. Walnut Creek empties into Cedar Creek six miles northeast of the Cedar Creek Reservoir (at 32°29' N, 96°08' W).
