Welcome to the Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm. Since 1799, this farm has remained agriculturally productive. Over the course of the two centuries, the Shields and Ethridge families adapted to larger trends in upcountry Georgia agriculture, from the first crops of tobacco to the planting of cotton and grains, and then cattle grazing.

The story of the Farm begins when our nation was new at the end of the 18th century and continues today as we celebrate the history and heritage of agriculture in northeast Georgia. Two hundred years of working the land, family growth, and technological progress shape what you see before you. From about 1899 to 1909 Ira Washington Ethridge constructed these buildings, transforming the farm into a bustling center of social and economic activity in Jackson County, Georgia. Today the Farm complex is quiet and open for your exploration but take a moment to stop and imagine wagons rolling by, the smell of freshly plowed soil, and hum of farm activity.

Mission

The mission of the Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm is to provide and operate an educational and interpretive outdoor museum that uses historic preservation and the natural environment to increase an awareness and understanding of Georgia’s agricultural history.

Special Events

On the third Saturday in May the Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm celebrates its agricultural heritage. Visitors can see displays of traditional farm equipment and animals as well as demonstrations of period crafts by local artisans. Live bluegrass music and BBQ complete a day of old-fashioned fun for the entire family. Visit the website for announcements on special events.

Archival Collections

The Shields and Ethridge families seldom threw things away; what could not be used was set aside… just in case… Not only is the Farm remarkable for its well-preserved buildings and their contents, but also for the rich collection of papers that the family created and kept, including letters, ledgers, photographs, tax records, catalogues, scrapbooks, memorabilia and home movies. The Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm website features a digital library of documents and photographs from the 18th and 19th centuries that visitors can read first hand.
