Some time between late 2007 and early 2009, this marker (#033-12) was removed but the supporting post remained. In spring 2009, the marker was repaired and re-installed. However, the two Georgia state markers at this location were switched in their location when this marker was re-installed. This marker (#033-12) was previously on the left (south) side of the National Park Service interpretive sign, but it is now on the right (north) side.
