Creedmoor is a city in Granville County, North Carolina, United States. The population was 4,124 at the 2010 census.HistoryCreedmoor'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 28 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 8 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 10 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.
