The highway crossing east and west at this point is the Old Federal Road, northwest Georgia's earliest vehicular route. It led across the Indian County from the southeast boundary of the Cherokees, in the direction of Athens, toward Nashville via Rossville. Another branch ran from a fork at Ramhurst, Ga., toward Knoxville, Tenn. Formal permission to use the trace was granted by the Cherokees in the 1805 Treaty of Tellico. This way was the first postal route of this section of Georgia and was the earliest emigrant trace from the lower Southeast to Tennessee and north Alabama.
