The chapter is named for the
Hightower Trail, one of the most distinctive trail names in Georgia. As early
as 1750 Indian traders from Augusta used this route. Recognized as a former
boundary between Cherokee and Creek lands, this trail brought many early
settlers into what is now Cherokee County. The trail is not named for a
person. The name is a corruption of the Indian word "itawa", which
the early white settlers also turned into the name Etowah.
