  • Introduction: Recreation and Parks and Friends of Lost Corner host History and Ecology Lectures. Learn about the Chattahoochee River, which predates even the earliest natives to our area, who lived here as early as 6,000 BC.

The Chattahoochee River predates even the earliest natives to our area, who lived here as early as 6,000 BC.  For several centuries it was part of the boundary of the Creek and Cherokee lands.  It became the northern and western boundary of Indian treaties made between 1818 and 1821 as the state expanded its settled lands into our area.  The river has long presented a barrier and an opportunity to those who live on its banks.  Many have made a name for themselves by meeting that challenge.  Some of those names persist today.
