Identifier: Series I

Scope and Contents note

Originally the stone horse-mounting block that had belonged to Creek Indian Chief General William McIntosh (ca. 1778-1825), relocated to the campus from his property “Lockchau” (also known as “Acorn Bluff,” now McIntosh Plantation) in Carroll County. From 1980 to 1996, the McIntosh Stone served as the logo for West Georgia College until it was replaced by a “flame of knowledge,” the State University of West Georgia logo.
