The Wire Road, named for a line of telegraph wire once stretched along it, formed a part of the stage highway from Richmond to New Orleans. About 3 miles from the Flint River on this road is the Crowell Methodist Church, founded in 1826, on the site of an Indian Agency. Near the church were stables where fresh horses were kept for stagecoaches. Near Fickling's Mill was an inn where travelers on coaches spent the night. Many noted guests, including General LaFayette, were entertained at the Peter Corbin mansion which stood about a mile from the Flint River on Wire Road.
