PECAN CREEK, MIDDLE
There are two Pecan Creeks in Hamilton
County--one near the middle of the county and the other near the
western edge of the county from the Leon River north of Gentrys
Mill moving toward Carlton.
The Pecan Creek which flows through the
middle of Hamilton
County begins southeast of Hamilton
near the intersection of CR 401 and FM 1241 (Blue
Ridge Road) and progresses in a northwesterly direction through
the middle of Hamilton before turning eastward following CR 210 to CR
221. HWY 22 crosses Pecan Creek two miles east of Hamilton.
Pecan Creek joins the Leon River between
CR 302 and Rock House. Pecan Creek
was once deep enough to be able to propel mills. In April, 1957, the
raging torrents from Pecan Creek flooded the Hamilton courthouse square.
