Five Forks is an agricultural community which grew up around the crossroads created at the intersection of Spring Place and Cassville – Pine Log Roads. Five Forks Road extends to the south at that point. According to the History of Bartow County by Lucy Cunyus, Five Forks contained numerous houses, a grist mill and a filling station. The old Five Forks’ school in the community educated many Bartow County children.
