The route bearing left follows closely the course of the Old Quaker Road, one of Georgia`s earliest vehicular thoroughfares. It was opened about 1769 to provide a direct highway from Savannah, the colonial capital, to a Quaker settlement centering around Wrightsboro in today`s upper McDuffie County.

This road was one of the longest and most important in the Province of Georgia. Much of the original way remains in daily use.
