Live History


About Lincoln County Historical Society

Our historical park attempts to replicate one of the small communities that used to exist in rural Georgia.  In Lincoln County, you drive by signs that say, Kenna, Liberty Hill, Goshen, Woodlawn, and many others, but there’s not much there – our park reminds us of what may have existed in these places.

The Lincoln County Historical Society is a non-profit association organized to perpetuate the economic and cultural history of Lincoln County.  The park was created over the last 30 years by the Historical Society from a bare tract of land, using lots of elbow grease and almost completely volunteer labor.  

Come and enjoy our display of treasures to help keep history alive.

We  now have a Park Tour App for your Smartphone; download it from the Apple or Goggle store for free, search for "Lincoln County Historical Park".  Use it in the park or from the comfort of your home.
