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.
Home to the Uncle Remus Museum and Pulitzer prize winner Alice Walker, Eatonton is located in the heart of Georgia's Lake Country and filled with antebellum homes, boutique shopping and recreation. Stop by the welcome center for information on the all the tourist opportunities in Eatonton-Putnam County.
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.
