Cowan Hollow Trail

  My great grandfather and grandmother built a homestead here after being burned out of Georgia by General Sherman's union army.† The ruins of that house are still here.† It has been twenty years since I have visited this area, but I still remember how beautiful it is, and I do plan on returning to visit again soon.
Says David Cowan
