This small North Georgia town is the birthplace and home of Senator Richard B Russell. Golfers will love playing at The Georgia Club or The Chimneys. The gem of this community is Fort Yargo State Park. This wooded park was named for the 1792 fort built by settlers. Amenities include camping, cottages, the 260-acre Marbury Creek Reservoir with swimming beach, boat rental, hiking and biking trails, picnicking and mini-golf. Most facilities are wheelchair accessible. The park also includes Will-A-Way Recreation Area, an accessible facility specifically designed for challenged populations, with a group camp, picnic and fishing areas, and paved trail. Spend the afternoon shopping in Downtown Winder, complete with antique, craft and furniture shops and a variety of restaurants and coffee shops. The Winder Cultural Arts Center is an artistic haven with both visual and performing arts. The county historical museum offers a look into the people and events that shaped the town of Winder.
