The 1791 Holston Treaty prohibited settlers from entering the Cherokee lands in the Powell Valley, but Tennesseans holding North Carolina land grants moved into the area. President Washington directed the pioneers to leave the valley. Captains Richard Sparks and John Wade read the executive order to the settlers at Yoakum's Station, 1 mile southeast, in February 1797. The Treaty of Tellico (1798) resolved the controversy.
