This church is named Montpelier after Fort Montpelier of 1794, 1/2 mi. below here down the Oconee. This fort & others were built during the Creek Indian troubles. Capt. Jonas Fouche was ordered to guard the Ga. frontier from the mouth of the Tugaloo to Fort Fidius on the Oconee. 200 militia cavalry & infantry raised under Gov. Telfair were placed under the command of Maj. Gaither, Federal commandant. A note on Fouche's map reads: "As it is 40 mi. from Fort Twiggs to Mount Pelah where Maj. Gaither lies in garrison, it is recommended that a public station might be created by the Government (at Cedar Shoals)".
