 “The Hardman Farm property offers a unique blend of historic preservation, Native American history and natural conservation. This amazing place has a story to tell – a completely intact example of a working farm including a beautiful Italianate farmhouse and 19 historic outbuildings; a Native American past clearly marked by the Indian Mound; and 170 acres of land in the area known as the Sautee-Nacoochee Valley, unspoiled by the development that is sweeping through this area of Georgia.”  http://www.gasolar.org/department_of_natural_resources_hardman_farm.php
