The road running east towards Big Spring is a remnant of the Oakfuskee Trail, main branch of the noted Upper Creek Trading Path from the Savannah River to the Creek Indians of Central Alabama.

Beginning at present Augusta, Georgia the route led this way via Warrenton, Eatonton, Indian Springs and Greenville. From here it passed south to LaGrange and continued westward to Oakfuskee Town, early main center of the Upper Creeks, located on the Tallapoosa River to the west of Dadeville, Alabama.

White traders with the Indians began using this thoroughfare in the early 1700s. Eventually the route became a pioneers' trace of significance.
