體驗簡介

The tour begins meeting Johnny, a slave descendant & lifelong resident of the area at the historic Lyon's House site where you tour the grounds, experience the living area of slaves, & listen to rich stories passed down through generations. You gain an understanding of what it was like for families to live on small Southern Farms before the Civil War.

Next drive or walk .6 miles along a paved two-lane road to the start of an old stagecoach road, now a trail. Continue the trail for .25 miles as you get an understanding of Flat Rock. Then you turn a corner and enter a wooded area dotted with gravestones. This is the Flat Rock Historic Cemetery with at least 202 interred individuals, many simple unidentified gravestones. This area has ticks in summer, you do not have to visit the cemetery but focus primarily on the house.

The Cemetery’s oral tradition roots its origins as a Native American burial ground with evidence of Native and AA interaction. Some interred were born slaves & freed after the Civil War.

After visiting the cemetery, you can continue back to the Lyon’s Farm where you can enjoy the scenic views of Panola Mtn that only a local would know or stroll along the PATH.
Other things to note
Bring your camera, water, sunscreen. In summer ticks are rampant at cemetery. Make Sure to dress appropriately-pants, long socks, tennis shoes. You do not have to visit the cemetery.

I am Johnny, the tour guide at the Flat Rock Archives located in the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area. I had the vision to create an archive that would preserve African American history in DeKalb County since the 1980s. I have been recognized through numerous awards where I specialize in the preservation of rural GA African American history. Many stories have been passed down through my family for generations that discuss the days of slavery through Jim Crow, the founding of the KKK on the top of Stone Mountain, to tenant farming and working in the local granite quarries.

Mr Waits is very well informed and has much to tell about life in Flat Rock. Many things are under reconstruction and restoration which is terrific.

Johnny is going to take you on a wonderful journey of the Flatrock area. His personal insights are extraordinary. His passion for conservation and sharing this story is enlightening. You walk through the lives of white and black farming life. You gain a better understanding of the strong ties of the black church and community. You learn the importance of a final resting place. My daughters loved hearing the experiences from someone directly related to the past. It opened their eyes to history in a magnificent way that touched them so much, they were talking about it the entire way home. A great experiential learning opportunity!

Johnny was a great host with a wonderful story to tell. I genuinely enjoyed the personalization of this tour. He shed a light on many aspects of the lives of slaves and freed people; their daily rituals, living arrangements, and end of life procedures in that area of Georgia.

Johnny was a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable and professional. Well worth the small fee. My 19 year old daughter who didn't want to go ended up really enjoying it. Go, you won't regret it.

An incredible glimpse into a unique community and rich history. One of the most worthwhile tours I have taken. Full of personal insights about life before and after slavery in a small community.
