At Young´s Tavern, 12 room log home of Robert Young, where travelers frequently stopped for lodging, Andrew Jackson, his staff and two companies of militia, spent a night on their way to the Seminole Campaign in 1818. General Jackson followed the road through Monticello and Hawkinsville, while the main body of troops went to south Georgia by way of Alabama. This was on the Federal Road, first vehicular way in northwest Georgia, opened in 1805. Robert Young, born in North Carolina in 1760, son of a Revolutionary soldier, had a 1600 acre farm here and was a leading pioneer citizen of this section
