The route crossing at this point is the Sunbury Road, one of the longest vehicular thoroughfares of post-Revolutionary Georgia. It was laid out in the early 1790 from Greensboro via today Sparta and Swainsboro to the town of Sunbury, a port on theMidway River in Liberty County. The route was noted for its elevated course and small number of stream crossings. When Sunbury, once a leading Georgia port, lost commercial significance, the road declined in arterial importance. Much of the old way, however,continues in daily use.
