The oldest Confederate monument in North Carolina, crafted by noted Scottish stone mason George Lauder, honors the Confederate and Union soldiers buried near Cross Creek in unmarked graves.

Brookside, an area of Cross Creek Cemetery dedicated to burials for African-American post-Civil War, contains the graves of many notable families of the Fayetteville area. This cemetery was designated by the City Council as a local landmark in September 2003. Some of those notable families and individuals include E.E. Smith, members of the Chesnutt family, Dr. Paul Melchor, Robert Harris, the first principal of the Howard School and Bishop Hood. The grounds consist of free blacks buried after the Civil War and others born during the days of slavery.
