Text of marker: "ALLATOONA PASS. Allatoona was in pioneer days a travel hub, because ridges from east and south met here where it was fairly easy to cross the Allatoona Mountain range by winding over a low ridge, or pass. The Sandtown or Tennessee Road from the south, and the old Alabama Road from the east, joined here to cross the pass, then separated, the Sandtown to cross the Etowah and aim for Tennessee, and the Alabama Road to run west on the south side of the Etowah. 008-44 GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1956"
