Creek Indian Agency


An agent for the Creek Indians was appointed as early as 1792 and was permanently established by 1800. For a time, his responsibilities included all the Indians south of the Ohio River and east of the Mississippi River. The Creek Agency in the eastern part of the United States was located principally east of the Flint River near Knoxville, Georgia. At least one agent operated out of Mardisville, Alabama.

At the end of 1832, the Creek Agency was reduced to a subagency and was abolished in 1836. Any remaining duties of the subagent for the Creek Indians in the east were then delegated to military officers in the area.
