Creedmoor was founded in 1885 by American Civil War Confederate veteran Robert Fleming. Creedmoor's unusual name comes from a legend of an old cartographer named Creed Moor who strolled through the town during the late 19th Century. Creedmoor was once home to the Chappell Mule Dealers Company, once the largest dealer of the animal, naming the city “The Mule Capitol of the World.” A title which is now held by the city of Benson in Johnston County, North Carolina. The community was also formerly called “Need More.”

In 1905, local entrepenuer Thomas H. Lyon applied for a town charter for the city, and later that year the United States granted Creedmoor a Post Office located on the town's main street. The home of Thomas Lyon lies on the main street (now modern-day Elm St.) across the street from the original home of the First Baptist Church of Creedmoor (now located on Main Street). Mr. Lyons 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.

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 an Historical District unlike nearby Oxford and Wake Forest.

Today, you can appreciate the classic 'main street' atmosphere of an American small town. You can purchase live pullets (young hen chickens) from the local Southern States store in early Spring to cultivate your own fresh eggs. Lake Rogers provides an enjoyable boating, park and playspace, providing fun for all ages.
