Top 5 Things To Do

  1. Take a guided tour of the Gist Mansion, former home of "Secession Governor" William H. Gist. 
  2. During the warmer months, treat your senses to a walk through the formal gardens that surround the mansion. 
  3. Tread gently back in time as you explore the Gist family cemetery. 
  4. Look for birds and other wildlife along our half-mile Nature Trail that begins near the picnic shelter.  
  5. Swing over to the picnic shelter and have yourself an old-fashioned picnic.
