Description

From Historic Culloden:

Monroe County’s oldest town, Culloden, Ga. was first settled in the late 1700s by William Culloden, a Scotsman. It has always been an agricultural community. The 104-year-old Dickey Peach Farms, with its stand at the corner of Highways 341 and 74 drawing visitors from miles around, is one example. Other agricultural businesses include Elm Oak Nursery, famous for its Christmas poinsettias and a wide range of landscape offerings; and forestry, feed, production, transportation, safety and other industries.

The town of 300 residents is rediscovering its Scottish roots and branching out into one of Georgia’s newest industries: tourism. Amenities include two convenience stores, an auto and tire repair shop and a laundromat.

Culloden also is actively pursuing the preservation of its historic past, with its foremost project being the renovation of the Schoolhouse auditorium as a community center.

Georgia’s Peach Blossom Trail follows Highway 341 through Culloden, also easily reached through other highways and byways.

Ride your ATV to your heart’s content at Rocky Creek. All are convenient to Forsyth, the hub of Monroe County, where one can find the Forsyth Square Bed and Breakfast Inn; Thomaston, in nearby Upson County, home of the Thomaston-Upson Archives; and Barnesville, in Lamar County. In the latter historic city can be found the antebellum Rose Inn, just 16 miles alway from the Culloden Festival Grounds. All three larger towns offer ample accomodations to tourists.
