1. Stagecoach Road Marker
Inscription. Near here ran the old Stagecoach Road from Augusta, Petersburg, Washington and Greensboro to Park’s Mill, where a toll bridge crossed the Oconee. After crossing the river the highway diverged -- the left fork going to Eatonton, Milledgeville, Macon, Knoxville, Talbotton and Columbus. The right fork led to Madison, Monticello, Indian Springs, Jackson, Griffin, Greenville, LaGrange, and West Point. This was known as the “Seven Islands Road” because it passed the seven islands in the Ocmulgee River. Park’s Mill was an important point from the earliest settlement of Greene County.
 
Erected 1993 by Georgia Department of Natural Resources. (Marker Number 066-8.)
