Sweetwater Creek State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This park preserves both the natural piedmont landscape and the ruins of the New Manchester Manufacturing Company’s mill that operated from 1849 until burned by the Union Cavalry on July 9, 1864. Today the mill’s brick walls and mill race serve as reminders of Atlanta’s early history and the heartbreak of the Civil War.

The park’s visitor center features exhibits about the area’s natural history and the tragic story of the mill and the people who worked there. In addition, the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)–certified building is among the world’s most energy-efficient structures."
