Surrounded by Atlanta, Macon and Columbus, Thomaston in Upson County is conveniently located near larger metropolitan areas while still offering the comforts of small town living. While visiting Upson County, enjoy some of our rich history such as the PettiGrew-White-Stamps House, one of Thomaston's oldest homes, or the Frances Walker House, an authentic "shotgun" home filled with African-American memorabilia. Upson County features a turn-of-the-century courthouse and outdoor recreation opportunities, including an 18-hole golf course and an agri-education experience through The Rock Ranch, owned by Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy.
Take a walk through the Auchumpkee Creek Covered Bridge, or enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer by canoeing, fishing or hiking at Sprewell Bluff Park located on the Flint River. For a more daring adventure, soar through the air with our local Skydive Atlanta, or visit Gerald I Lawhorn Scouting Base for mountain biking or rock climbing. We hope to see you soon!
