History of Sandy Springs, GA
Throughout the historic time period, the Chattahochee River served as a border between the Cherokee Nation to the north and also the Muscogee Creek Confederacy towards the south. "Cherokee" does not have any meaning within the native vocabulary of this tribe. These people call themselves Yun-wiya, generally translated it means, ‘the people." The name "Creek" originated from a corruption of Ocheese Creek, the name provided by English settlers to the native individuals residing along Ocheese Creek (Ocmulgee River). Both groups practiced an economic system based on farming, hunting and also fishing.
Three Native American fishing weirs may still be noticed in the Chattahochee River at the crossing points of Sope Creek and Mulberry Creek. Weirs were made by piling rocks in a "V" form. Fish trapped in the weir were simple to hook or spear. Sandy Springs is situated to the south of the Chattahoochee, but the land, like the river, was most likely utilized by both groups.
Although no archaeological proof has been discovered to support the claim, tradition holds that the area where five springs bubble out of the sandy soil was utilized as a buying and selling site. Whether true or not, the sandy springs really are a distinct landmark which have given their name to the entire community.
