1. 96 Marker
Inscription. An unusual name for a place! But there is a logical reason, of course. Notice on the map the location of the frontier Indian trails that later became roads. This place was chosen for a trading post because it was a convenient campground along the Cherokee Path. It was 96 miles from the Cherokee Indian Village of Keowee to this site. So, 96 is really a distance name and distance was important in this country in early days when travel was difficult.
 
Erected by National Park Service, US Department of the Interior.
