Just west of Madison lies Rutledge, a town of only 800 and the gateway to Hard Labor Creek State Park – Georgia’s 2nd largest state park.

 

Surrounded by cotton fields and the beautiful rural countryside of Morgan County, Rutledge’s historic district is virtually unchanged since the heyday of the railroad.

 

Founded in 1871, Rutledge is a sweet small town reminiscent of simpler times, offering quaint shops and unique restaurants all surrounding the town park.

 

In the summers, locals love to gather in the town park for weekly farmer’s markets, a popular Summer Concert Series, or even just to catch up with an old friend and a cold milkshake or homemade Root Beer from The Caboose – a favorite deli housed in a 1910 box car.

 

Rutledge may be small, but it sure is special!
