BIG STINKING CREEK, TEXAS


Stonewall County, Panhandle / West Texas

History in a Pecan Shell

In his well-researched and detailed volume Springs of Texas, Gunnar Brune introduces us to hundreds of springs, streams, creeks, tributaries, wells and maybe a swamp or two - many of which have names unsuitable for towns.

Six miles southwest of Aspermont in Stonewall County (at 3308' N, 10025' W) flows Big Stinking Creek. Sulphur springs feed the creek and give it its name (and odor).

It's not a heavily populated area, so there are few people that have to endure the embarrassment of giving directions to visitors. Big Stinking Creek flows northeast for sixteen miles before joining the Salt Fork of the Brazos River in northern Stonewall County (at 3315' N, 10011' W).
