Creek Agency Marker
Here on the Flint River was the headquarters of the Agent for Indian Affairs South of Ohio until the area was acquired by Georgia in the Creek cession of Jan 24, 1826.

Here Benjamin Hawkins and David B. Mitchell, Agents, resided and in 1804 and 1818 negotiated treaties with the Indians.

Hawkins, Agent from 1796 to 1816, here entertained hundreds of Indians and many white notables. He established an immense model farm and taught the Indians how tospin and weave and grow cotton, corn, grain and cattle.

This Creek Agency Marker is located in Crawford County, on GA Highway 128 about 1/4 mile north of the Taylor County line.
