Noted Indian Trail Marker  


The Oakfuskee Path, main branch of the famous Upper Creek trading route from the Savannah River to the Creek Indians, passed here. Beginning at present Augusta, it led through Greenville via Warrenton, Eatonton, Griffin and Flat Shoals of the Flint River to Oakfuskee Town, an early Upper Creek center on the Tallapoosa River in Alabama.

White traders began using this trail in the early 1700s.

In time the route became a noted pioneer trace and eventually a leading stage road.
