Inscription
The colonial Great Indian Trading Path crossed land now a part of Augusta College and followed a part of the present McDowell Street. It was variously called Trading Road, Augusta Road, and the Creek Indian Path. Early platts show it on land owned by Robert Walton, Abia Clay, and Francis Willis.

During the colonial era the Path was Augusta's lifeline of profitable Indian trade; the exchange of English goods for furs brought in from the wilderness. Along this trail and its connections a lively commerce was carried on with tribes westward through Georgia and Alabama, to Mississippi and Tennessee.
