To this village came the inhabitants of Ware, Pierce, Clinch, Coffee and Appling counties, bringing staple cotton, beeswax, honey, jerked venison, hides, furs, etc., to exchange for flour, sugar, coffee, shot, powder and other commodities they did not produce. Here, too, disputes were settled and sports enjoyed. A regular stop for stage coaches traveling the Kings Road, old Center Village went out of existence after the coming of the railroad. 024-8 GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1958"
