Creek Agency in Georgia #genealogy #history #georgiapioneers

The Creek Agency Reserve

Creek AgencyBenjamin Hawkins came into this area in 1803 and developed a compound on the Flint River. The compound included a shop and plantation, which became known as the Creek Agency Reserve. The site was located near Macon and doubtless served as one of the forts along the frontier during the Creek War of 1812 to 1813. Although Hawkins was well liked by the local Creeks, he believed that he could persuade the natives to embrace an European-American way of life. He settled disputes and resolved many issues concerning white settlements in Creek territory. When he died at the Reserve in 1816. he was replaced by David B. Mitchell.
