Little Nadine's Grave

Reviewed By masaccio - Huntingdon, United Kingdom

This is one of those "curious America" attractions. The background is the story of a child who was diagnosed with a respiratory tract infection shortly before Christmas in 1933. Her parents, desperate to made her happy as her health deteriorated bought her early presents and promised to build a play house. She died just before Christmeas and her father decided to go ahead and complete the house. Today, the local community maintain the grave site and I gather it's also visited at Christmas.

The inscription on her small grave reads:

"Our Darling Little Girl, Sweetest In The World
April 3rd, 1929 – December 18th, 1933
Little Nadine Earles
In Heaven We Hope To Meet
‘Me Want It Now.’”

The "Me want it now" is her reference to her desperately wanting that playhouse.

Fort Tyler

Reviewed By Jack L - East Syracuse, New York

On April 16,1865, one week after General Lee surrended at Appomaltox Court House, the battle of Fort Tyler took place between a large force Union force under Ge. Oscar La Grange against a smaller Confederate force commanded by Gen. Robert Tyler. Part of the Confederate force of 265 soldiers were convalescents from nearby hosiptals. After a day long engagement, the Union force were the victors, with the death of Gen. Tyler.

Fort Tyler is an earth mound constructed fort, three 1865 cannons & ammo magazine in the fort's center. The mound is at least four feet high, possibly closer to five feet in height. I can't say what the original dimensions were, the reconstruction is about 100' X 100' square with a wooden wall surrounding the inside.

Eight information stands give an excellent detaited history of the fort. These include Battle of Fort Tyler, West Point Before the War, Reconstruction of Fort Tyler, General Tyler, Women of West Point, Arifacts found at the fort, & the fort's armament. The stands have drawing, original photos of the time period & small painting both sides. sadly time & weather have destroyed some of the wording and faded the photographs.

The fort doesn't stand out, NO sign saying 'Fort Tyler'. Look for a memorial monument with a small/medium size parking. An eight foot fence surrounds the complete site, with a winding asphalt walkway up to the fort through a wooded area, with the Chattahoochee River to the west. I can't say what time of day the gates are unlocked, however a sign inside the fence says closed before darkness. No admission. I was the only visitor, just opened the unlocked gate and walked in.

The fort maybe small, however with all the information stands, a visitor can learn much about a little known battle. I discovered the fort's existance the day before while searching for civil war sites in Georgia.

I highly recommend a visit.Any civil war buff will probably enjoy a visit., A visit may last only 30 minutes. During my visit, I viewed, read, & photgraphed for an hour & half. Look at the fact that unknown history is waiting to be discocered and visited.

We visited here expecting to see a vineyard but there isn't a vineyard to be seen on the property. Their wines are made from juice they get elsewhere. We liked several of their wines but they really should drop the "vineyard" from their name. The...MoreI am sorry the Vineyard was not there when you visited as we are a new winery and in the process of planting our vineyard. The Blanc du Bios Vineyard will be planted March 2016.

Mills like this built the south and this is one of the largest in the south. Impressive historic building that still has plenty of character and while you can't go inside, the exterior has some interesting sites. Wish they could make more of this, even for the casual tourist.

Chattabrewchee Southern Brewhouse

Reviewed By _suebert13 - West Memphis, Arkansas

5.0 star rating 9/18/2017

This is a really cool place.

We were in Valley, Alabama from Memphis to attend a family member's funeral when hubby and I had to get out and get away from the family drama. It was about 4 p.m. and we decided to tour the area and crossed the Georgia border in a matter of minutes. We saw this storefront that said Chattabrewchee with a chalk board sign outside that said "we're open". Yep, hubster saw the brewery inside and we had to stop.

I will start by saying I am NOT into beer in the least and unfortunately, I was not swayed here. However, I loved it! You are welcomed by a very nice gentleman who is the co-owner of the establishment with his wife who he very proudly states is an active duty female and because of her status was not there. He explains the process of picking the beer that suits you. You see, this is a self serve brewery which requires a card. You pay the amount you would like credited to your card, and then you go to a wall of beer choices, put the card in the slot of the one you want and pull the tap. As you approach the beer wall, you are greeted by the nicest person(s) who helps you figure out the system and which type beer you want to try. There are usually more options to choose from but that day we could choose from seven...each with it's own distinctive taste espresso, chocolate, blackberry, raspberry, etc... As I said, I am not a beer drinker and after paying for a small sample of each, I never changed my mind about the taste of beer. BUT, my husband loved it!

They don't serve food and you would think that would deter people from coming in but each table has take out menus for all kinds of food from places around town and you can have the food delivered at the brewhouse. Cool idea, huh?

Not being able to drink was not an issue because I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the live music was phenomenal. People and their pets just visited, played jenga and hung out while listening to Corbin Hoats strum his guitar and serenade everyone.

I would highly recommend a visit to Chattabrewchee, A Southern Brewhouse in West Point, Georgia.
