Supported by a local Friends chapter, this pretty park west of Augusta is best known for its equestrian facilities, Confederate museum and lakeside group camp. Horseback riders can explore 12 miles of trails and stay overnight in their own campground. Overnight guests can choose from lakeside cottages or a modern campground, while large groups can enjoy privacy in the park’s group camp or pioneer campground. Visitors can enjoy geocaching, fishing and boating, while also learning about a key officer in the American Civil War. Named after the vice president of the Confederacy and governor of Georgia, A.H. Stephens State Historic Park features a Confederate museum with one of the finest collections of Civil War artifacts in Georgia. Stephens’ home, Liberty Hall, is renovated to its 1875 style, fully furnished and open for tours.
Wagon wheels creaked to a halt in front of Liberty Hall. It’s the year 1865 and A.H. Stephens is being arrested, charged with treason. Join Friends volunteers and park staff in a reenactment demonstration as they take you through time to this historic day. Will A.H. Stephens make it back home to Liberty Hall? Come see for yourself and hear the whole story Saturday, May 14 2016 from 11am-1pm at the park!
