Doublehead Historic Marker

doubleheadAbout 1800 Doublehead located his village at this site, where his brother-in-law Tahonteeskee had previously lived. Doublehead’s log house was built along the same style of those of the white settlers. Chief Doublehead had previously led raids against Tennessee settlers from Moneetown, located southwest of here. In 1806 a reserve was set aside for Doublehead between Elk River and Cypress Creek. He leased large tracts of land to white settlers who were later evicted by the U.S. Army. His own people assassinated Doublehead on the Hiwassee River in 1807.
