WOODWARD CREEK. Woodward Creek rises four miles southeast of Brenham in Washington County (at 30°05' N, 96°21' W) and flows north seven miles to its mouth on New Years Creek, east of Brenham (at 30°11' N, 96°20' W). It crosses gently rolling to sloping terrain surfaced by fine sandy loam and clay that supports grass and some live oak. The creek was probably named for S. Woodward, who received a land grant in 1831 on which the headwaters are located.
