Find Who has Created a Site Collection, List or Library in SharePoint using PowerShell

If you want to find out who has created a SharePoint site, list or library: Sorry! There is no way from SharePoint user Interface!! You can't get "Created By" or "Created On" values anywhere. 

But PowerShell is our rescuer! Lets find who has created a SharePoint list using PowerShell:

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

#Get the List and Web
$web = Get-SPWeb ""
$list = $web.lists["Sales Docs"]

#Get Creator and Created date of the given List
Write-host "List Created by:"$List.Author
Write-host "List Created on:"$List.Created

#Get Site collection Creator and Created Date 
write-host "Site Created by:"$web.Author
Write-host "Created on:" $web.Created
