The Old Coffee Road, earliest vehicular and postal route of this section, running south-westward from the Ocmulgee River to the Florida line, passed through today´s Lax, Nashville, Cecil, Barwick, and Thomasville. The thoroughfare was opened by direction of the State in 1823 under the supervision of Gen. John coffee and Thomas Swain. Over this pioneer route the products of the region were carried to the coast to be sold and imported goods brought back. Sections of the original are in use today.
