Homesteads, Museums & Heritage Sites

Celebrate the “old ways” along the Farm Trail — from Cherokee Indian heritage and Civil War history to  our rich Appalachian culture.

History lives on along the North Georgia Farm Trail, which meanders through some of the state’s most historic terrain. Museums, cultural sites and living history farms preserve our rich agricultural heritage — and exhibits and artifacts bring the ghosts of the Cherokee and Civil War heroes to light.

So, plan time on your tour to hear the stories and experience life in another place and time. Unlike commercial attractions, many museums and heritage sites operate on limited schedules — particularly during the winter off-season. Before venturing out, check websites or call ahead for hours and days of operation.
