1. Old Federal Road Historic District Marker
Inscription.  Development along Indian trails of the Old Federal Road began in the early 19th century to improve transportation between South Carolina and Tennessee. Although European settlement in this area began in the late 1700s, the road increased populations and prompted the development of communities such as Nails Creek and Mt. Pleasant. Farms, trading posts, churches, schools, post offices and other services were established at each location. Homes associated with both communities remain along the Old Federal Road, many of which are owned by descendants of the early settlers.
 
Erected 1999 by The Georgia Historical Society and the Franklin County Historical Society. (Marker Number 59-2.)
