Located on 46 acres of ravine forest and historic past, Autrey Mill Nature Preserve & Heritage Center has 2+ miles of walking trails which wind past a scenic creek off the Chattahoochee River. Adding to the Preserve's scenery are rocky shoals, spring seeps, mature trees, wildflowers, native plants and animal life.
Historic farmstead buildings and exhibit pieces from the late 1800s, gathered from various locations in north Fulton, Gwinnett and Forsyth counties, make up the Heritage Village.
Visitors are welcome every day during daylight hours to enjoy the park grounds, historic buildings, picnic areas and trails.
Children love the popular Heritage Girl classes, Scout badge programs and "messy science" workshops offered year-round. All programs, classes and camps are managed by the Autrey Mill Nature Preserve Association, a non-profit organization.
The Association's goal is to provide the public with an educational resource to gain knowledge, enjoyment, appreciation, and a sense of stewardship of the natural and historical environment.
