Dooly Spring
Georgia Historical Marker Seal

  The spring, to the left of this marker, was used by the John Dooly family.

The simple log cabin, in which Colonel John Dooly and his family resided, was situated across the road opposite the spring. It was here that Colonel Dooly was murdered by a band of Tories.

Colonel Dooly fought with General Elijah Clark during the Revolutionary War.

Dooly County was named for Colonel Dooly.

Located in Lincoln County off US 378 on the grounds of Elijah Clark State Park
