Cedar Creek Texas History:
In 1832, Addison Litton was granted a league of Blackland prairie land on both sides of the Cedar Creek. He and his wife established a home and were soon followed by other settlers including Jesse Billingsley and John Day Morgan. Before long the community’s social life began to revolve around the Methodist Church. The Cedar Creek post office was established in 1852. By 1884 the town served as a shipping center for corn and cotton, and had 600 residents. Area oil drilling began in 1913; oil was discovered in 1928 and continued to produce commercial quantities through the mid-1840s. The town of Cedar Creek is located along Cedar Creek at the intersection of SH 21 and FM 535 (CR 110), 30.5 miles southeast of Austin, 30 miles southwest of Elgin, 11.8 miles southwest of Bastrop, 24.5 miles northwest of Smithville, 29 miles northwest of Rosanky, 11 miles northwest of Red Rock, 8 miles northwest of Rockne, 22.4 miles northeast of Lockhart, and 31.7 miles northeast of San Marcos, Texas.
