Shuttles running for Brown's Mill park opening

by Sarah Fay Campbell

The grand opening ceremony for Coweta County's new Brown's Mill Battlefield historic site is today.

Because the parking lot at the site is small, all visitors are asked to park at the Coweta County Fairgrounds on Pine Road and use the shuttle service to get to the battlefield site, which is located on Millard Farmer Road near Old Corinth Road. Parking for the shuttle service will be in the grass parking lot that is usually used during the county fair.

Only those in wheelchairs will be allowed to park at the site, and only with a special permit given by Coweta County. You can get the permit by going to the fairgrounds and heading toward the grass parking lot, where attendants can help you.

Shuttle service begins at 8:30 a.m. and the ribbon cutting for the battlefield site will be held at 9:45.

The dedication ceremony, which will last around an hour, will begin at 10. The dedication will include speakers Dr. David Crass, state historic preservation officer, and Dr. David Evans, a Civil War scholar and expert on the Battle of Brown's Mill.
