The Trails at Brown's Mill are open.
Come out to the battlefield for a nice walk, but be sure to pick up a map at the trailhead. We want you to know where you are at all times. There are signs that mark the location and the length of each trail. Also, take time to read the signs that tell the history of the people who lived and fought there.
We appreciative the support of the Coweta County Board of Commissioners who allowed us to build the trails and the Kiwanis Club of Newnan who gave us financial support for the construction of the trails.
The mission of the Friends of the Brown’s Mill Battlefield is to reveal, through as many voices as possible, the stories of the people and places involved in the Battle of Brown’s Mill, and to revere the memory of all who were touched by the battle.
Our goals focus on preserving and protecting the battlefield, supporting the implementation of park design, archaeological preservation, and land acquisition.
July was a historic month in the year 1864 for Newnan, Coweta County, Georgia. Not only were Newnan's seven hospitals filled with hundreds of Confederate wounded brought in from other battles; on July 30, a cavalry battle was fought 3 miles south of town at Brown's Mill. Both Confederate and Union wounded were brought in to be treated by the doctors and nurses located here. Life was never the same in Newnan after that day.
