WHITE ROCK CREEK (HOUSTON COUNTY)
WHITE ROCK CREEK (Houston County). White Rock Creek rises 1½ miles northwest of Berea in east central Houston County (at 31°21' N, 95°21' W). The creek formerly flowed southeast for twenty-five miles to its mouth on the Trinity River two miles west of the Carlisle Community in southwestern Trinity County (at 30°54' N, 95°16' W). Since the construction of Lake Livingston in the late 1960s the creek has been inundated in its lower reaches. The surrounding flat terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
