Indian Springs State Park

This Park in Butts County surrounds the mineral springs once important to the Creek Indians. A small museum depicts the history of the area. Across U.S. 23 from the park is the Indian Springs Hotel where the 1825 Treaty of Indian Springs ceding all the Creek lands in Georgia was signed. William McIntosh, who built the hotel and signed the treaty, was killed by outraged tribesmen at his Carroll County home.
