This road is one of the oldest in North Georgia. In the Indian days it connected Hightower Trail to the Etowah Mounds and Cherokee country with trails to Coweta Falls (Columbus), the Chief McIntosh home on the Chattahoochee River and the Creek Indian villages in Middle Georgia.

In stagecoach days it was used from Decatur through Panthersville, Morrow, Jonesboro, and Fayetteville to Columbus. Early Georgia maps call this "Strawn's Road". The section beyond the Flint River was known as "King's Road".
