Troup and Harris County residents first settled at the crossroads of the LaGrange-Whitesville-Columbus Stagecoach route and the West Point to King's GapRoad in the late 1820's. Named for local landowner, Christopher Columbus Jones (1831-1904 and his son Monroe, Jones Crossroads once had several flourishingbusinesses, including a cotton gin, a racehorse track, a tavern, and a U.S. post office called Paulina. Monroe Jones established the rock store in 1903 which members of the Avery Family have owned and operated since the 1920's. Just south of here is UnionBaptist Church, established in 1838, and the site of Union Academy and the Jessie Wisdom Institute.
