Foster & Creighton was a construction contracting firm of Nashville, Tennessee. It has been known also as the Foster-Creighton Company, as the Foster and Creighton Co., and as Foster and Creighton Company.

It was founded in 1885 by Wilbur F. Foster and Robert T. Creighton, who had both served as City Engineer of Nashville. A third partner was bought out, early on, and the firm was known as Foster-Creighton Company.[1]
