Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve Professional Review and Guide
"The story of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians is both tragic and a testament to perseverance. They are descendants of the original Creek Nation, which at one time populated most of Alabama and Georgia. For the most part the Creeks and federal government coexisted. In fact in 1790 a treaty was signed to develop an old American Indian trail into what would become a major trade route in the South, the Federal Road, which stretched from the Gulf of Mexico to north Georgia. The treaty allowed Creeks to establish businesses along the route to accommodate travelers. They built inns and served as guides and river pilots, and some became cattlemen, providing beef to the area."
