Enjoy a leisurely walking tour as you venture back in time and explore the property that has been farmed since 1840.
The 135 acres that make up the original Hyde Farm consist of numerous cultural resources. Natural features include the Chattahoochee River and forests that are found in both the lowlands adjacent to the river and the uplands near the home site. Man-made features include terraced agricultural fields, lowland pastures/old fields, the orchard, the home site, the meadows and the farm outbuilding sites. Enjoy the pond which is stocked with catfish and bass that was built on Mulberry Creek in the 1980s. And you may see geese, ducks, herons, turtles and even beavers.
The 45-minute tour starts at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month. Meet near the red gate at the end of the parking lot. Call 770-528-8840 if you have any questions.
Hyde Farm is located off of Lower Roswell Rd. at 728 Hyde Rd., east of Johnson Ferry Rd. in East Cobb. There is no fee, but registration ahead of time is required for each event. Click HERE to register for either the 10am or 11am tour.
