This town was named by its first postmaster. William Osborne, appointed February 2, 1829. In 1827, Mt. Zion Methodist Church was built 1 ½ miles E. on the Old Indian Trail and Stage-coach Road from the Flint River via Talbotton and Waverly Hall to the Chattahoochee River. In 1896 the church was moved into town. Near here was the "Foster School" taught by William Foster and James G. Calhoun, which attracted boarding students from Georgia and Alabama. I. H. Pitts & Sons, established in 1869, was the first mercantile establishment in Harris County and one of the first in the area. The Baptist Church was organized in 1893. Rev. J. W. Cline, pastor.
