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.

Featured Event

Meet me at The Plaza: Matt Rogers Band: August 22!

The Last but certainly not least act for the summer concert series is Eatonton native, Matt Rogers and his band. Bringing the freshest sound in country music, Matt Rogers delivers his unique approach to entertainment every time he steps in front of a microphone. As a singer and a songwriter, Matt's original music is rich with emotion and struggle. As a cover musician, he brings a unique texture to songs and presents them in a different way-without disturbing the integrity of the original version. Today, Matt is performing all across the south. He has recorded a five-song demo EP and has just released two new singles. Produced by industry giants Dino Pastin and JoAnn Berry, "I Was Raised" and "Please Come to Boston" have already created waves of enthusiasm with music executives in Nashville.
