Five miles South on this road, George Washington spent Sunday night, May 15, 1791, at the house of ´one Spencer.´ the occasion was Washington´s Southern tour, and he was travelling in his carriage over this road from Savannah to Augusta.

Four miles south on this road, another famous tavern, ´Martin Dasher´s Old Public House,´ stood for many years. Martin Dasher himself operated the tavern as early as the Revolution, and it was still in operation, a regular stop on the Stage Road, in 1816.
