WHITE ROCK CREEK (HILL COUNTY)
WHITE ROCK CREEK (Hill County). White Rock Creek rises five miles southeast of Itasca in west central Hill County (at 32°08' N, 97°04' W) and runs south for twenty miles to its mouth on Navarro Mills Lake, five miles northeast of Dawson on the Navarro county line (at 31°56' N, 96°47' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain, surfaced by dark, commonly calcareous clays that support mesquite, cacti, and grasses. For most of the county's history, the White Rock Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
