This road, called "Three Notch Trail" from early days, is believed to have been marked with three notches by scouts sent out by General Andrew Jackson's troops on their march to Fort Scott. Most of his troops passed this way en route to fight the Seminoles in Florida. Notable among them was Col. A. P. Haynes and his detachment of Tennesseans. This route, an old Indian trail, was used by General Edmund P. Gaines and his troops from Fort Gaines to Fort Scott. It was a wagon road for early settlers and one of the important pioneer roads. It appears on maps as early as 1820.
