Long Description:


A notable ante-bellum land-mark established 1852, by Judge Clark
Howell (1811-1882). Two buildings -- grist and sash-sawmills --
which stood on the N. bank, and in the bend of, Peachtree Cr.
1000 ft. west of the present bridge.

The old road crossed the creek on a wooden bridge to the west of the
present highway and bridge. Surviving the war, the mills burned in
1879. They were the center of a rural community with a P.O.
(1876-1891). Another enterprise was Foster's Woolen Mill,
established circa 1880 -- which stood on the S. bank of
the creek, to the W. of this marker.
