<———->The highway crosses at this point the former course of the Sunbury road, one of the longest vehicular thoroughfares of post-revolutionary Georgia. It was laid out in the early 1790's from Greensboro via today's Sparta and Swainsboro to Sunbury, a port on the Midway River in Liberty County. The Jefferson and Johnson county line follows this early route. The old way lost arterial significance when Sunbury, once a leading port, declined in commercial importance. From northern Emanuel County southward, much of the way remains in daily use.
