In a tradition that started with Br'er Rabbit and continues to this day, folks around Eatonton enjoy many a good tale. From the fisherman telling the story of "the one that got away" to a golfer stretching the truth about the length of his drive, to a spinetingler about a ghost who lives in the house next door; the stories abound.

Take the time to visit us and create your own stories. Whether you come for the fishing, golfing, shopping or historic homes, there is a little something for everyone in the family. It is a time-honored Southern tradition to make visitors feel welcome, and we'd like to think the folks in Putnam County are very good at it.
