Cline's Prairie

Share This Page

Nelson Creek, a spring-fed perennial stream, rises seven miles northwest of Huntsville in western Walker County (at 30°46' N, 95°43' W) and flows northeast for twenty-six miles to its mouth on the Trinity River (at 30°55' N, 95°31' W). It traverses gently sloping to nearly level terrain, surfaced by sandy loam that supports along the creek banks woods of loblolly pine, shortleaf pine, sweetgum, blackgum, water oak, willow oak, post oak, elm, pecan, and black hickory. Anglo-American settlement in the vicinity began in the mid-1830s. The Cline's Prairie community was established on the east bank of the middle creek in the late 1800s.
