One of the larger settlements of the upper creeks at the time of indian removal to the west, 1835-1837. Their last council fire was held here before their forced migration to Oklahoma. Pioneer families began pouring in after 1836. Today's cemetery was known as pine level; the first Baptist Church was located there. A half mile south was Ball's Fork Trade Center and Stage Coach Junction Loachapoka can be interpreted as "land where turtles live" or "turtle killing place."
