Located between Nebraska City and Peru, the rural community of Camp Creek was formed soon after Nebraska Territory was opened to settlement in 1854. Twelve years later, a group of local men formed a public cemetery association and accepted the donation of one acre from George Lee. In honor of the cemetery's 50th Anniversary, the Lee's Ladies Cemetery Association (formed in 1912) raised funds to make improvements and build a chapel.
