The Legend of MAPLE FORGE
    Cherokee and Creek Indian tribes lived here in Maple Forge long before the Liles, Reeds, Cheeks, Browns, Bagwells and Sears came into this area.
    The Indians fished and hunted the woods and streams, and their little children played on the creek banks. They called this land the "Fresh Green Place."

    The Indians taught the early settlers how to grow cron, beans, pumpkins and squash. They showed them how to set snares for animals, how to tan hides, girdle a tree, make medicine from plants, and how to get along on the land.

    The mountains seen in the far distance are the same ones that gave strength to those early settlers. Because the mountains are so pretty so strong, and so magnificent, they renames the area and from that day to this, it has been known as "Mountain View."
