——— 2 mi. →About two miles South, in the fork of the Appalachee and Oconee rivers, stood Fort Mathews, built in 1793. From this fort, Thomas Houghton observed the activities of General Elijah Clark and his land hungry followers as they built forts and fortifications for the protection of Clark's "TRANS-OCONEE-REPUBLIC." From here Houghton wrote to Governor George Mathews the report that led to the arrest of General Clark and the downfall of his dream of an independent republic established on land not yet ceded by the Creek Indians.
