“come meet the past”
Meet the Past as you visit a Piedmont Georgia farm facing the challenges of the Civil War home front. As you explore the farm site, you may participate in the daily tasks or past times, and will meet characters portraying the family, neighbors, enslaved workers, and friends. The Smith Family Farm includes the Tullie Smith House, a plantation-plain house built in the 1840s by the Robert Smith family. Originally located east of Atlanta, outside the city limits, the house survived the destruction in and around Atlanta during the Civil War. The house and detached kitchen were moved to the Atlanta History Center in the early 1970s and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.The house and separate open-hearth kitchen are now surrounded by a dairy, blacksmith shop, smokehouse, double corncrib, slave cabin, and barn, as well as traditional vegetable, herb, field, flower, and slave gardens.
