According to "The History of Fayette County" Sandy Creek is located in the northwestern corner of Fayette County halfway between the town of Tyrone and the Fife/Bethany community.

 Churches in the area were -

Concord Methodist Church

Sandy Creek Baptist Church

There was a school begun in this community that was first held at Sandy Creek Baptist Church and moved into it's own building around 1905.  When this building burned, students from the area attended The Rock School that was two miles away.  Later the Sandy Creek School was run from Tom Walker's property and Andrew Johnson's property. In the 1940's the school was consolidated with Fayetteville schools.

The Ellington Cemetery is in this community.
