The Chattahoochee State Park is a state park and recreation area in Gordon, Alabama. It is located in the southeast corner of the state, near the Florida-Alabama stateliness, and just a couple of miles out of Dothan Description Historic Park of the Wiregrass Irwin's Mill Creek The banks of the creek are rich in history. A significant action of the First Seminole War took place not far from the park. Copyright 2011 by Dale Cox All rights reserved. Originally designated as Chattahoochee State Park, this historic park near the very southeast corner of Alabama is now maintained by Houston County. Created as a Works Progress Administration project and constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (C.C.C.) during the darkest days of the Great Depression, the park has provided recreation for residents and visitors in the Wiregrass area for more than 70 years. So long, in fact, that it is now a historic site in its own right. While many original C.C.C. parks have been greatly modernized over the years until it is difficult to recognize the original Depression era planning and work, Chattahoochee State Park still retains much of its original rustic charm. Dirt roads built by C.C.C. workers wind through the park, crossing a natural stone dam built during the 1930s to impound the waters of Irwin's Mill Creek and create a clear, freshwater lake in the park. There are modern conveniences, of course, but the feel of the original planners is still there. Traces of the camp complex used by the Depression era workers can still be seen along the park's C.C.C. Trail. Despite its name, the park is not actually located on the Chattahoochee River. The water that flows through the recreation area is Irwin's Mill Creek, one of the most historic streams in the Wiregrass Area of Southeast Alabama, Northwest Florida and Southwest Georgia. Archaeological research along the creek, in fact, has revealed that ancient Indians lived in its basin long before the birth of Christ. Fluted stone points found just downstream from the park are thought to have been left behind by prehistoric hunters who passed through the area thousands of years ago while pursuing large game animals such as mastodon and American bison (buffalo). When Spanish explorers made their way west across Florida into the valley of the Apalachicola and Chattahoochee Rivers (then known along its entire course as the Apalachicolo), a small but powerful group called the Chisca lived along Irwin's Mill Creek. They fled their town in 1675 after sparking a war with the Spanish. For many years, however, the land along the creek was known as the "Chisca Old Fields" and in later years the nearby Lower Creek town of Chiscatalofa also preserved the name of the band. They eventually merged with the Creeks and are today known as the Yuchi. By the time of the American Revolution, the Red Ground band of Creeks were living on the Chisca Old Fields along Irwin's Mill Creek. Their town, called Ekanachatte, ran along the south bank of the creek to the river and then down to today's Neal's Landing Park in Jackson County, Florida. Ekanachatte aligned itself with an alliance of Seminole and "Red Stick" Creek towns against the United States during the First Seminole War. On March 13, 1818, it was attacked and destroyed by a U.S. allied force of Creeks led by William McIntosh. In his account of the battle, McIntosh crossing what is now Irwin's Mill Creek somewhere near the Chattahoochee State Park site.
