Revolutionary War veteran Major William Hall settled in this area in 1785 and built a station, 1 1/4 miles northeast. He and two sons were massacred a few years later. Born in North Carolina in 1775, General William Hall, his son, served in the Indian Wars of 1787-95, the War of 1812, and as governor, state legislator, and U.S. Congressman. He died in 1856 and is buried with his father near Hall's Station.
