Old Mill Creek Cemetery
Mill Creek United Presbyterian Church of Hookstown can trace its ministry back to 1784 when Mill Creek Presbyterian Church, the first Presbyterian church in Beaver County, was established.
Because our church is so historic, it has the oldest Presbyterian cemetery in the county, Old Mill Creek Cemetery that currently contains the highest number of Revolutionary War veterans of all cemeteries in Beaver County.
In addition to the tombstones of Revolutionary veterans, there are many other tombstones that carry with them a very rich history for the tri-state region.
Thankfully, all of these tombstones have now been photographed and cataloged! The church was blessed to have a young man work on cleaning up the cemetery and cataloging the tombstones for his Eagle Scout project.
What does this mean? If you are a genealogist or interested in local history, we now have two very large and well organized binders in the church library that provides a map of the cemetery and lists of the names who is buried where (when legible).
Come to the church and feel free to make use of this great gift we have received.
