Ocfuskooche Tallauhassee Marker  


A flourishing, ancient town of the Muscogee Indians known as Ocfuskooche Tallahassee Old Town stood on this site. English traders from Charles Town visited it about 1685. A trail known as "Old Horse Path" led from this village to the Tallapoosa. Ocfuskooche is known to have existed through Colonial and Revolutionary times but, soon after 1790, the town was abandoned and its inhabitants moved westward to settle on the Tallapoosa River. The westward surge of settlers and bitter frontier fighting forced the move.
