Just East of the railroad from here and 200 yards North of Wauhatchie Spring and Branch, stood the home of Wauhatchie, Chief of the Cherokees. In the War of 1812 he served in a company of Cherokees under Capt. John Brown, Col. Gideon Morgan and Maj. Gen. Andrew Jackson, fighting the Creeks from Jan. 17 to April 11, 1814. Old records say "Wauhatchie, severely wounded March 27th, ~ lost his horse." He was a signer of the Hiawassee Purchase of July 8, 1817, is listed in the U. S. Census of the Cherokee Nation in 1835 and followed the "Trail of Tears" westward when the Cherokees were moved from Georgia.
