Located a short 45 minute drive from Atlanta, Concord and Pike County's rural atmosphere and simple, relaxing lifestyle make it a gem waiting to be discovered. If you are looking for a place where you feel like you stepped back in time, visit Pike County.
Nationally, Concord is known as the location for the critically acclaimed SlowExposures Photography Festival. The festival returns each fall to feature international photographers producing work focused on the rural South.
Just outside city limits, The Meriwether-Pike County Scenic Byway celebrates the unique legacy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in west Central Georgia. During the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, FDR came to Warm Springs in hopes the therapeutic warm springs would help improve the condition of his legs, damaged by polio.
