Text:

The oldest remaining colonial settlement in East Alabama from Florida to the Tennessee line and older than the county of Henry and the state of Alabama. An active trading post was located here in the Alabama Territory on “The Hill” early in 1819. The first settler gateway to the wiregrass was at Franklin located 14 miles east.
