Text of marker: "FAMOUS INDIAN PATH. The Oakfuskee Trail, main branch of the noted Upper Creek Trading Path from the Savannah River to the Creek Indians of Central Alabama, passed this site, running east and west. Beginning at present Augusta, the route led this way via Warrenton, Eatonton, Indian Springs and Greenville. From here it continued westward to Oakfuskee Town, early main center of the Upper Creeks, located on the Tallapoosa River to the west of Dadeville, Alabama. White traders started following this thoroughfare on the early 1700s. Much of the route remains in use today, although the immediate section to the east has long been abandoned. 141-4 GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1954"
