From the construction of the "Copper Road" from Ducktown to Cleveland in 1853 until the coming of a railroad to Ducktown, this was the midpoint of the two-day wagon haul. Wagoners camped near the inn at the mouth of Greasy Creek. Four-mule teams were usual, but teams of six or eight were occasional. The load limit was 500 pounds of copper per animal in the team.
