The Upper Trading Path, one of the historic Indian ways of the Southeast, passed here, leading westward from present Augusta to tribes as far away as the Mississippi River. By various connections the route reached the Muscogees of Western Georgia and Central Alabama; and the Chickasaws and Choctaws of Mississippi.

The main stem of the thoroughfare, the Oakfuskee Path, led past Warrenton, Eatonton, Indian Springs, Griffin and Greenville to Oakfuskee Town, chief early center of the Upper Creek Indians on the Tallapoosa River in Alabama.

White traders began using this way in the early 1700s.
