Inscription. The Old Coffee Road, a pioneer vehicular and postal route, passed here. Beginning at the Ocmulgee River, below Jacksonville, it ran some 120 miles via today´s Lax, Nashville, Cecil, Barwick and Thomasville to the Florida Line. The thoroughfare was opened by direction of the State in 1823 under the superintendence of General John Coffee and Thomas Swain. This early route provided a short way from the older middle and eastern sections into Southwest Georgia and West Florida. Much of the former course remains in daily use.
