Much of the land surrounding what is now Lake Hartwell was inherited from the Cherokee Native Americans and early settlers, which several of the nearby streams, rivers and recreation areas were named after. A young Native American maiden named Issaqueena named some of the streams as she was traveling to Fort Ninety-Six to warm settlers of an attack. Along her horseback journey, she kept track of mileage by naming the streams she passed with the number of miles she had traveled. Six-Mile, Twelve-Mile, Three-and-Twenty Mile, and Six-and-Twenty Mile Creeks still exist to this day.
The man-made Lake Hartwell was constructed between 1955 and 1963 in response to the Flood Control Act of 17 May 1950. The lake was named after the American Revolutionary War figure Nancy Hart. Her devotion to freedom made her a prominent figure in Georgia history, and a county, city, lake, state park, and highway all bear her name.
