Allatoona Pass  Marker  



Text:

Allatoona was in pioneer days a travel hub, because ridges from east
and south met here where it was fairly easy to cross the Allatoona
Mountain range by winding over a low ridge, or pass.
The Sandtown or Tennessee Road from the south, and the Old Alabama
Road from the east, joined here to cross the pass, then separated, the
Sandtown to cross the Etowah and aim for Tennessee, and the Alabama
Road to run west on the south side of the Etowah.
