A large oak tree on the site - estimated to be 150 to 200 years old - overlooks a creek sitting above a floodplain behind the Sautee Nacoochee Post Office.
The Native Peace Garden is the first part of an overall master plan that will improve and unite the many features of the SNCA campus. The plan was developed in 2016 by the SNCA board of directors, working with the Georgia Mountain Regional Commission.
Special thanks to Helen and Jack Mott, donors; Allen Stovall, landscape design; Bob Slack, construction; Lynda Doll, coordinator; and Johnna Tutttle, naturalist.
Open from sunrise to sunset, the Native Peace Garden is available for the public's enjoyment.
