Cadet's Creek was the British period name for a small freshwater spring that ran to the east of what is now downtown Pensacola. Originating just west of St. Michael's Cemetery, it ran through the southern part of the cemetery grant southeasterly to Pensacola Bay (near modern-day Admiral Mason Park), serving as a sort of eastern boundary to the early Spanish and British settlements in that area during the eighteenth century. (This creek running though St. Michael cemetery was occasionally confused with a westerly creek named San Miguel in the First Spanish Period, also known as Washerwoman's Creek in the British period)
