On Sautee Creek just north of here are remains of a dam constructed as part of a grist mill owned by Edwin P. Williams. During the War Between the States, to arm the Home Guard, Gov. Joseph E. Brown had made a great number of pikes, daggers on long poles, for close fighting. This mill was converted to the manufacture of "Joe Brown Pikes." Though church bells and old iron were given for making the pikes, iron from a forge near Clarksville was probably used too. After the War the mill was reconverted to grinding corn.
