John Adam Treutlen Marker

Located at the intersection of Old State Road and the Belleville road, this historical marker was erected to John Adam Treutlen. While visiting some of his lands here, Mr. Treutlen was murdered by the Tories near Mett’s Crossroads in 1782. Treutlen was a member of the first Provincial Congress and was elected the first governor of Georgia in 1777.
