The Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm Tour
Estimated Tour Time: approx. 30 minutes
Tour Route Length: approx. 1 mile
Audio Traks/Images: 16
Welcome to the Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm. Since 1799, this farm has remained agriculturally productive. Over the course of the two centuries, the Shields and Ethridge families adapted to larger trends in upcountry Georgia agriculture, from the first crops of tobacco to the planting of cotton and grains, and then cattle grazing.
The story of the Farm begins when our nation was new at the end of the 18th century and continues today as we celebrate the history and heritage of agriculture in northeast Georgia. Two hundred years of working the land, family growth, and technological progress shape what you see before you. From about 1899 to 1909 Ira Washington Ethridge constructed these buildings, transforming the farm into a bustling center of social and economic activity in Jackson County, Georgia. Today the Farm complex is quiet and open for your exploration but take a moment to stop and imagine wagons rolling by, the smell of freshly plowed soil, and hum of farm activity.
The mission of the Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm is to provide and operate an educational and interpretive outdoor museum that uses historic preservation and the natural environment to increase an awareness and understanding of Georgia’s agricultural history.
On the third Saturday in May the Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm celebrates its agricultural heritage. Visitors can see displays of traditional farm equipment and animals as well as demonstrations of period crafts by local artisans. Live bluegrass music and BBQ complete a day of old-fashioned fun for the entire family. Visit the website for announcements on special events.
Visit the Farm
The Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm is open to the public and guided tours are available by appointment. We welcome groups of all sizes from schools, churches and civic organizations. We are located at 2355 Ethridge Road, Jefferson, Georgia 30549.
The Shields and Ethridge families seldom threw things away; what could not be used was set aside… just in case… Not only is the Farm remarkable for its well-preserved buildings and their contents, but also for the rich collection of papers that the family created and kept, including letters, ledgers, photographs, tax records, catalogues, scrapbooks, memorabilia and home movies. The Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm website features a digital library of documents and photographs from the 18th and 19th centuries that visitors can read first hand.

“Many hamlets and towns have been destroyed during the war. But of all that in some form survive, Alexandria has most suffered,” wrote a New York Herald correspondent in 1863. “It has been in the uninterrupted possession of the Federals for twenty-two months, and has become essentially a military city. Its streets, its docks, its warehouses, its dwellings, and its suburbs have been absorbed to the thousand uses of war.”
Explore Civil War Alexandria and discover how Robert E. Lee’s hometown of Confederate loyalists became a major operations center for Union forces while thousands of African Americans came to the town seeking freedom and security behind Union lines. Alexandria’s unique Civil War heritage gives visitors today the chance to see a Union fort, Confederate memorial, and museums dedicated to African American history. Check out more than two dozen distinctive sites and learn why Alexandria’s position as an occupied city made its Civil War experience unlike any other town in America - and why today Alexandria embraces its diversity as well as its past!
