1. Collier's Mill Marker
Inscription.  150 ft. down stream, on the right bank of Tanyard Branch, stood an ante-bellum grist mill built & operated by Andrew J. Collier, pioneer resident of this area. (1827-1887).

A notable landmark at the time of the Battle of Peachtree Creek - July 20, 1864.

It stood, not only at the center of Federal troop alignment along Collier Rd., but was the storm-center of the conflict that raged here, since the stream valley was a strategic approach to the Federal center toward which the Confederate forces (Walthall’s & Loring’s divisions of Stewart’s Corps) made their heaviest attacks.
 
Erected 1955. (Marker Number 060-39.)
