Historical Marker
    Addison P. and Melissa Hester deeded two acres of land to the Creek Community (then called Georgia Camp) for a school in 1887. Their infant son, Sydney Hester (d. 1889), was the first person interred here. An additional acre was donated in 1930. Creek Cemetery contains the gravesites of many local pioneer settlers, as well as veterans of the American Civil War and World Wars I and II. Neighboring communities, and many local residents who are descendants of pioneers buried here, continue to use and maintain the cemetery.
