Break away from all the hustle and bustle by driving up Highway 50 to the City of Creedmoor. Get away from it all and enjoy the best of small community living within a comfortable commute of nearby cities and all their amenities.
The city is currently working on its long range plan to provide greenways and sidewalks for residents interested in active outdoor lifestyle and to allow for safe travel to work, shopping and play. There are also several parks to take advantage of in the area, where residents can enjoy some relaxation or recreation. Lake Rogers provides a great outdoor setting for the family with picnic shelters, playground area and fishing by boat or on the pier. Harris Park offers a playground and horseshoe pit.
Local restaurants come in handy when you’re ready to take a break from the kitchen. Whether you want pizza, wings or a good ol’ Italian meal, try Pizza Mia Italian Grill. But if you get a hankering for barbecue, the Southern cookin’ at Bob’s Barbecue is sure to hit the spot. If the sweet tooth is calling, head to Grammie’s Kitchen which serves up cookies, cakes and confections - and ice cream too!
Tobacco played a significant role in the early history of Creedmoor. Tobacco was the cash crop of the day for most farmers, although cotton was prevalent as well. Once the railroad track came through the town, linking Creedmoor to Henderson and Durham, the town began growing rapidly.
There are four buildings in Creedmoor on the National Register of Historic Places.
Creedmoor, at one time, was the world’s largest mule trading center, earning the nickname “Mule Town.”
