This road is a portion of Hightower Trail, old Indian path to Etowah River, which ran from High Shoals of the Appalachee westward to Shallow Ford on the Chattahoochee. It formed a boundary between Cherokee lands to the north and Creek lands to the South. In 1817-21, it marked the Georgia frontier, and was used by pioneer families settling this section.

On November 17th and 18th, 1864, the left wing of Sherman's Army passed down this trail on its "march to the sea."
