The 500 mile long Natchez Trace of the early 1800's, then known as the Natchez Road, connected Nashville on the Cumberland River with Natchez on the Mississippi River. This historic wilderness road crossed the Duck River 1/4 mile south of here. John Gordon, an Indian scout and fighter with General Andrew Jackson, established a ferry and trading post here in 1802.
