Text:

The road from the east is a remnant of the Oakfuskee Path, main stem of the noted upper trading route from the Savannah River to the Creek Indians of Georgia and Alabama[.] Beginning at present Augusta, it led this way via Warrenton, Eatonton, Griffin, and the Flat Shoals of Flint River to Greenville; thence to Oakfuskee Town, an early Upper Creek center on the Tallapoosa River in Alabama.

White traders began using this way in the early 1700´s. In time the route became an important pioneer trace and a leading stage road.
