ABOUT

Stewart County

The Stewart County area was inhabited by Native Americans for thousands of years in the Pre-Columbian period. It is home to several significant archaeological sites from the Mississippian people including the Roods Landing Site and the Singer Moye Mounds. 

 

Beginning in the 1960s, several towns and communities in Stewart County began to redevelop their historic districts and Main Streets, establishing themselves as a leader 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 visit-worthy sites include the Richland Rum distillery (in Richland) and Omaha Brewing (in Omaha), and Providence Canyon State Outdoor Recreation Area - a 1,003-acre Georgia state park. The park contains Providence Canyon, which is sometimes called Georgia's "Little Grand Canyon" and is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia.
