1. Great Indian Warrior / Trading Path Marker
Inscription.  The most heavily traveled road in Colonial America passed through here, linking areas from the Great Lakes to Augusta, GA. Laid on ancient animal and Native American Trading/Warrior Paths. Indian treaties among the governors of NY, PA, & VA and the 19 chiefs of Iroquois League of Five Nations in 1685 and 1722, opened the Colonial Backcountry for peaceful settlement and colonization. In GA, the Path had two branches from SC, the western to Augusta and the eastern to Savannah, formed to find salt and game.
 
Erected by National Society Daughters of the American Colonists Project of the 2000-3 Adminstration. Mary Ann Groome Hepler, National President.
