The road crossing east and west here is the Old Federal Road, western Georgia's first vehicular thoroughfare. Beginning at Fort Hawkins (now Macon) it led across the Creek Indian Country to the Alabama River above Mobile. Permission to open the trace was granted by the Indians in 1805.

The road long served as an emigrant and post route to the West.

Fort Perry, one-half mile due east, was established by General John Floyd's army when it came this way during the Creek War of 1813-14.

Lafayette travelled this road to Alabama in 1825. He spent the night of March 30 at Spain's Tavern near Fort Perry.
