First farmed before the Civil War, this land was purchased in the 1920s by Judge William H. Reynolds, who spent years reclaiming worn-out fields, building ponds, and planting trees. He also added thousands of native azaleas, and for many years visitors traveled great distances to tour the gardens. In 1976 Reynolds donated 130 acres to Clayton County for a public preserve. Federal grant funds were later used to construct a nature center, trails, footbridges, and picnic pavilion. Today the Reynolds Nature Preserve is operated by the Clayton County Parks and Recreation Department.
