MEADOW GARDEN

1320 Independence Drive, Augusta, GA 30901 DIRECTIONS

Since 1791

Here’s The Deal:
Meadow Garden is situated on the west side of downtown Augusta, east of the Sutherland Mill, separated from the Augusta Canal by the Augusta Canal Historic Walking Trail. The building is a 1-1/2 story wood-frame structure set on a high brick basement. It was built in stages, originally three bays in width, but now it's six, with three double-glazed dormers and two chimneys projecting from the gabled roof. The shed-roof porch stretches across the front, supported by slender Doric columns. The façade is irregularly arranged, with two doors and four windows. The home features 18th and 19th Century American and English furnishings, porcelains, paintings, and primitive household equipment. This national historic landmark has a peaceful and welcoming oasis in the heart of Augusta's industrialized area; Georgia Meadow Garden was the home of George Walton, one of the youngest signatories to the Declaration of Independence.
