The area now called Cumming was first inhabited by Cherokee tribes. They came in
1755, the Cherokee and Creek people developed disputes over hunting land. After two
years of fighting, the Cherokee won the land in the Battle of Taliwa. The Creek people
were forced to move south of the Chattahoochee River.
The Cherokee coexisted with the settlers until the discovery of gold in Georgia in
1828. Settlers that moved to the area to mine for gold pushed for the removal of the
Cherokee. Finally in 1835, the Treaty of New Echota was signed. The treaty stated
that the Cherokee Nation must move to the Indian Territory. This resulted in the
Trail of Tears. The Cherokee territory was then formed into Cherokee County in 1831.
In 1832, the county was then split into several counties including Forsyth County.
