The community takes its name from the creek which runs through it, which in turn got its name from the auction at the site of the goods and arms taken from the eleven towns of the militant Cherokee in the region before they were burned during the raid of Evan Shelby's troops in 1779, during the Chickamauga Wars (1776-1794).
