Nash Farm Battlefield, a 204-acre public park, is located in far western Henry County on its line with Clayton County, about 21 miles south of Atlanta. The Civil War battles called "Lovejoy" or "Lovejoy's Station" once covered many square miles of land, but that land is now mostly covered up by every kind of development. During the second half of 1864, the Nash Farm was the scene of considerable military activity, including Kilpatrick's Raid, infantry battles/skirmishes that marked the end of the Atlanta Campaign, as well as the campsites belonging to Confederate General Stephen Dill Lee's Army Corps.

The park is open seven days a week and historical markers provide a self-guided tour.
