Visit Eatonton

Welcome to the Briar Patch!

Eatonton, Georgia is home to traditions that started with Br'er Rabbit and continue to this day. Folks around here enjoy many a good tale, from the fisherman telling the story of "the one that got away" to a golfer stretching the truth about the length of his drive, to a spinetingler about a ghost who lives in the house next door; the stories abound.

Take the time to visit us and create your own stories. Whether you come for the museums, fishing, golfing, shopping or historic homes, there is a little something for everyone in the family. It is a time honored southern tradition to make visitors feel welcome and we'd like to think the folks in Putnam County are very good at it.
