Old Dixie Highway subject of DOT project

The Georgia Department of Transportation is creating an atlas of the old Dixie Highway ‘“ better known around these parts as Highway 41 ‘“ and has chosen the stretch between Barnesville and Forsyth as its pilot project. Historians from New South Associates were in town recently to collect oral histories of the highway, built roughly along the trail of an old stagecoach route. While attendance was sparse, the memories were not. The entire highway from north Michigan all the way to south Florida was called the Dixie Highway. Highway 41 was America’s first federal north-south route.
