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