<———->The route intersecting here is the Old Sunbury Road, one of the longest vehicular thoroughfares of the post-Revolutionary Georgia. It was laid out in the early 1790's from Greensboro via today's Sparta, Swainsboro and Taylor's Creek to the town of Sunbury, a port on the Midway River in Liberty County. The trace was noted for its elevated course and small number of stream crossings. When Sunbury, once a leading Georgia port, declined in commercial importance, the old road lost arterial significance. Many stretches of the early way continue in daily use.
