FLOWERY MOUNTAIN. Flowery (Flower) Mountain, formerly known as Brewer's Mountain, is near Nat, Looneyville, and Flat Woods in northwestern Nacogdoches County (at 31°46' N, 94°49' W). The mountain, a mesa-like area of six square miles with an elevation of 250 feet above the surrounding terrain, was named Flowery for the wildflowers there. It rises from a rolling prairie with clay loam soils that support mesquite, grasses, and mixed hardwood and pine forests. The Flowery Mountain community was located on the mountain.
