The Oldest Standing Masonry Jail In Georgia Has An Incredible History

Georgia is filled with tons of incredible and unique attractions, many of which are unlike anything else in the rest of the world. For example, this one-of-a-kind zip line in Georgia has won Guinness World Records. But if you’re looking for things to do in Georgia that aren’t as high flying as that, then we have something special. This historic structure is rare and for free, you have the chance to see it up close.
