Creedmoor Real Estate Analysis

Brief History of the Town:

Creedmoor’s unusual name comes from a legend of an old lexicographer named Mr. Creed Moor who strolled through the town during the late 19th Century. In 1885, a group of twenty five taxpayers of Granville County including American Civil War Confederate veteran Robert Fleming appeared before the Board of Commissioners for the County of Granville with a petition from the Dutchville Township. The petition made a proposition to subscribe ten thousand dollars to the capital stock of the Oxford and Clarksville Railroad Company. Under the provisions of the act of the General Assembly of North Carolina which was entitled “An Act to Incorporate,” the Oxford and Clarksville Railroad Company was notified on the 28th day of February 1885. The proposal was thereby approved under the provisions of the General Assembly of North Carolina. As a result it was ordered that the election of subscribing the said sum of ten thousand dollars to the capital stock of the said railroad company be submitted to the qualified voters of the Dutchville Township and that an election be held in the said township at the proper voting place therein on the 8th day of October 1887. Over the next few years, the Creedmoor served as a railroad depot between the Clarksville and Oxford Railroads and the Raleigh and Gaston Railroads. In 1886, Thomas B. Lyon applied to the Postal Department for a post office to be located in Creedmoor. Lyon’s request was granted on the 10th day of April 1886. John Harmon was appointed as the first postmaster. In September of that same year, Samuel C. Lyon, son of Thomas B. Lyon, was appointed postmaster.

Creedmoor was incorporated in 1905, having previously been known as Creedmore. The first mayor was Joseph L. Peed (1859–1936). In 1888 Lyon sold part of his land to the Durham and Northern Railroad for track to run through the town. Linking Creedmoor to Henderson and Durham was a major cause of growth of this town. The old Seaboard train depot building still stands at its location on Elm St. making it over 120 years old. Also previously located on Elm street was the original location of The First Baptist Church of Creedmoor, built in 1895. The present church building built in 1950 stands on Main Street. Mr. Lyon’s body is entombed on the grounds of the original cemetery for the church, whereas Mr. Fleming’s body is entombed in a small family plot on Fleming St. a road named for the founder, adjacent to Elm St. In 1917, electricity came to Creedmoor when G. H. Dove and F. J. McDuffy flipped a switch in their plant which was located on Railroad Street. Although the town is rich with history (home to four buildings on the National Registry of Historical Places) it does not hold the title of a Historical District unlike nearby Oxford and Wake Forest.
