The Old Federal Road, leading across the Indian Country from the Cherokee boundary, in the direction of Athens, branched at this point toward Knoxville and Nashville. The right turn led northward into Tennessee via Chatsworth and Tennga, while the left fork bore northwestward via Spring Place and Rossville.

Formal permission for the white people to use this way was granted by the Cherokees in the 1805 Treaty of Tellico, Tenn.

This thoroughfare, following the course of an early trading path to Augusta, became northwest Georgia's first vehicular and postal route.
