George Jones Memorial Baptist Church , built by the residents of Wheat in The earliest substantial occupation of the Oak Ridge area occurred during the Woodland period c. Both sites were located just southeast of the former Scarboro community. The Oak Ridge area was largely uninhabited by the time Euro-American explorers and settlers arrived in the late 18th century, although the Cherokee claimed the land as part of their hunting grounds. During the early 19th century, several rural farming communities developed in the Oak Ridge area, namely Edgemoor and Elza in the northeast, East Fork and Wheat in the southwest, Robertsville in the west, and Bethel and Scarboro in the southeast. The European-American settlers who founded these communities arrived in the late s following the American Revolutionary War and after the Cherokee signed the Treaty of Holston , ceding what is now Anderson County to the United States.
