Owl Creek Cemetery was established around 1809, and it is still active. It is located across the road from the Owl Creek Baptist Church. There are many old marble and sandstone monuments, and several have beautiful carvings. Most of the gravestones are in good condition, but some of the older monuments have been damaged. Many of the oldest gravestones are sandstone, and the weather has started to wash away the inscriptions. The cemetery is very well maintained.
