Few sites in the piedmont hills surrounding Atlanta surpass the scenic beauty and historical significance of the 527-acre McIntosh Reserve. The park was once the home of William McIntosh, a Creek chief and veteran of the War of 1812. In the early 1900s, Georgia Power purchased the land, planning to dam the Chattahoochee for hydroelectric power. The dam was never built, and in 1978 the company donated the property to Carroll County for a park.
