Cedar Creek Cemetery

History and Demographics for Manhattan, Kansas:

Manhattan is located in the northeastern part of the state at the confluence of the Kansas and Big Blue River. Part of Manhattan lies in Riley County (of which it is the county seat) and the other part lies in Pottawatamie County.

Manhattan is the eighth largest city in Kansas with about 52,000 citizens. The Manhattan Metropolitan area has nearly 115,000 residents. It is home to Fort Riley and the Kansas State University.

George S. Park founded the first settlement in the Manhattan area in 1854 after the issuance of the Kansas-Nebraska Act. Manhattan area settlers often contended with Native American raids and uprisings. They were also situated on the line between the North and the South during the civil war during the Bleeding Kansas era. Fort Riley protected the settlers from much of the conflict.

Cedar Creek Cemetery is located on Cedar Creek Road. Starting at the east end of the Tuttle Creek Dam, go east on K-13 1 ½ miles, then turn right onto Cedar Creek Road. Go ½ mile south.

The Cedar Creek Cemetery is a small graveyard with mostly Hays and York surnames buried here.

  1. Jan. 24, 2015 Visited the cemetery. Was there for about 30 min walking around looking at and photographing stones. Ran EVP recording but didn’t get anything upon first listen. However, as we were sitting in the car before leaving I got a heavy feeling. Lasted for about 10 min. or so after we had left. The when on Tuttle Creek Blvd, doing about 55 looked down and speedometer was not working. 15 min later it worked just fine. Weird to say the least…
