The History

Historic Smithonia Farm is, as it sounds, historic! Originally built in 1888 following the civil war, the farm was one of the largest in Georgia. Since then, the buildings have been restored and modern appliances have been installed, but the history of the property remains in tact. The barns feature handmade bricks made from the Smithonia Plantation and 65-foot heart-pine beams cut from trees grown right on the property. A full history of Historic Smithonia Farm can be found on their website, and it is definitely worth a read!
