"I was roused from this melancholy reverie by the roaring of Buffalo River, which I forded with great difficulty."
Alexander Wilson, 1811

Here travelers on the Natchez Trace crossed the river which was fordable except after heavy rains. The ford takes its name from its stone bottom, which reminded frontier travelers of stone-surfaced or "metaled" roads of the day.
