The Cedar Creek Community is located at the intersection of
FM 535 and State Highway 21 (Old San Antonio Road), while in past times the
community began 4 miles west of Bastrop, and extended upstream about seven miles
to the current day locale. The community is located in the head right league of
Addison Litton that was granted in 1835. It grew up near the place where the Old
San Antonio Road
the El Camino Arriba crossed Cedar Creek. In addition to the offer of year-round
water from the creek, a variety of native vegetation, abundant game, and fertile
soils attracted both prehistoric and historic people to this area. Some of its
pre-Civil War citizens fought for Texas independence from Mexico. The first
school was established in 1849 and by 1852 there was also a Post Office and a
General Store. Following the Civil War, many former slaves obtained their own
farms in this farming community. A number of prominent Bastrop County African
Americans settled in Cedar Creek after they were freed in the 1860's.

Bastrop Independent School District to Bastrop County for use as a recreational
park for both the school district and the citizens of Bastrop County. It
includes sports fields, trails and community gathering areas, as well as
preserved natural areas along Cedar Creek.
