Long Description:
The Old Coffee Road, earliest vehicular and postal route of this area, passed here, running some 120 miles from the Ocmulgee River via today´s Lax, Nashville, Cecil, Barwick and Thomasville to the Florida Line above Tallahassee. The thoroughfare was opened by direction of the State in 1823 under the superintendence of General John Coffee and Thomas Swain. This pioneer route played a leading part in the settlement and development of Southwest Georgia. Much of the former course continues in daily use.
