Ground Breaking At Last!

The official State of Georgia ceremony for breaking ground on the new Resaca Battlefield State Historic Site has finally happened. For our organization this has been a long time coming. The ceremony took place on the battlefield itself and was well-attended by many state and local dignitaries as well as dozens of other individuals with a long-standing interest in the battlefield's preservation. It is hoped that the park will open in 2010. Updates will be made available on this site.

You can read the official press release on the park from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources here.

State of Georgia Acquires Corridor for Battlefield Park

Progress on the 500+ acre Battlefield Park has been impeded by several things, not the least of which has been State budget woes. But, the State has now acquired an important piece of property that will enable the development of the park to move forward. After difficult negotiations, the Department of Natural Resources authorized the purchase of a less than 2 acre tract to supply a vital access corridor to the main park area from State Highway 136.

In May, 2001 tentative plans for the Resaca Battlefield Park were presented publicly for the first time by the State's Department of Natural Resources before a packed house at the Gordon County Library. Here, Lee Walton of the contracted Atlanta landscape planning firm Robert and Company presents details and listens to feedback from those in attendance. Final plans, based upon public input, are expected soon.
