Stewart County

The Stewart County area was inhabited by Native Americans for thousands of years in the pre-Columbian period. Stewart County is home to several significant Mississippian archaeological sites, including the Roods Landing Site and the Singer Moye Mounds, though these sites are not open to the public.  

Beginning in the 1960s, several towns and communities in Stewart County began to redevelop their historic districts and main streets, establishing themselves as leaders in heritage tourism in Georgia. Historic districts in Stewart County include commercial districts in Lumpkin, Omaha, and Louvale as well as the historic African-American community of Green Grove. Other popular destinations include the Richland Rum distillery, Omaha Brewing, and the 1,003-acre Providence Canyon State Park. The park contains Providence Canyon, sometimes called Georgia’s “Little Grand Canyon” and considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia.
