This was a well hidden secret and the main archaeological ruins have been off limits and kept from the public ever since their discovery. The “established” scientific community debates the Mayan connection because the existence of the ancient settlement, Kenimer Site 9 doesn’t fit the accepted model. But some of the pigments found at the site have been tested and are genetically connected to pigments found at some of the confirmed and admitted sites farther south. If such a major community existed here then surely there are other outposts and related structures in the area that are still waiting to be discovered. The exact location is near Georgia highest mountain, “Brasstown Bald” in White County Georgia. The site has been dated to around 900 ad.
There are lots of places to hike, bike, fish, camp or view wildlife nearby. Some offer cabin rentals. We have provided a link to one of the more popular campsites in the area.

Touring the countryside by train is one of the more leisurely and relaxing modes of travel. And traveling by rail will let you see the land in a more natural setting. Unlike the highway administration that landscapes the roadsides as if they are preparing for guests, the railways don’t normally receive the professionally designed scenery treatment, so things are normally just how they were 100 years ago. vintage train departs from five different stations located throughout southern Georgia.
