This is the headwaters area of the Ocmulgee River, below the confluence of the Yellow, South, and Alcovy Rivers and Tussahaw Creek at Lloyd Shoals Dam on Lake Jackson.
A public park owned by Georgia Power affords access to the river here, on the Jasper County side off Highway 16; if you cross the bridge (driving west) into Butts County you can access Lloyd Shoals Dam.
The American Legion was chartered in Monticello in 1931 with a small group of World War I veterans. Local Commander Ray M. Persons was instrumental in having the legion house constructed. Though not as active as it was in the past, the Legion still meets here.
