Patterson Creek is a 51.2-mile-long (82.4 km) tributary of the North Branch Potomac River in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle, in the United States. It enters the North Branch east of Cumberland, Maryland, with its headwaters located in Grant County, West Virginia. Patterson Creek is the watershed for two-thirds of Mineral County.
White settlers came into the Patterson Creek Valley around Frankfort (now Fort Ashby) between the years 1732 and 1736. The surnames of Casey, Pancake, Foreman, and Van Meter were the first to settle the valley. After the defeat of General Edward Braddock at the Battle of the Monongahela (9 July 1755) the white settlers of the Allegheny Mountains were largely unprotected from a series of Shawnee and Delaware Indian raids. In October 1755, in an effort to provide some respite, two forts were raised on Patterson Creek.
