1. Choctaw Corner Marker
Inscription. Established by Choctaw and Creek Indians about 1808 as the northern limit of boundary line between their lands. This line begins at the cut-off in South Clarke County, follows the watershed between Alabama and Tombigbee Rivers without crossing water.

The disputed territory boundary was settled by two ball games, one between the warriors and one between the squaws of each tribe. The Choctaws won both games clearing forever their title to the lands.

Actual site of corner is 1.7 miles North, N.E..
 
Erected 1978 by Clarke County Historical Society.
