OLD PHANTOM HILL ROAD CROSSED HAMILTON CO.
The old Phantom Hill road, which went to Fort Phantom
Hill in Jones County, [passed southeast-northwest through Hamilton County.
Traces can still be found for miles. It was a broad, double tracked road,
used in 1840's or 50's.
The fort got its name because of mirages seen there. It
was the subject of Larry Chittentonís poems.
[As a child in the 1940's I was
completely unimpressed when Daddy would point out the traces which crossed
my grandmotherís field at Blue Ridge.--Elreeta Weathers]
