SPANISH EFFORTS TO ESTABLISH MISSIONS FURTHER UP THE CHATTAHOOCHEE WERE UNSUCCESSFUL AND THE CHRISTIANIZED PORTION OF THE INDIANS MOVED SOUTH TO SABACOLA. IN 1717, THE PRO-SPANISH INDIAN LEADER CHEROKEELECHE (CHEROKEE-KILLER) BUILT A STOCKADE ON THE SITE. THE TOWN WAS ABANDONED AFTER A RAID BY PRO-ENGLISH INDIANS IN 1724. THE SITE OF SABACOLA IS NOW UNDER THE WATERS OF LAKE SEMINOLE.

ERECTED BY
THE HISTORIC CHATTAHOOCHEEE COMMISSION
