Hyde Farm Project

 

The Power family settled in what was then a rural area outside Atlanta, Georgia circa 1840. Ownership transferred to the Hyde family in 1920. The 135 acre property was purchased in 2008 by the Trust for Public Land and will be jointly administered by Cobb County and the National Park Service.

Hyde Farm is little changed since the early 20th Century. The farm represents a unique opportunity for open space recreation as well as education about rural life during that period. It is still a working farm nestled along the Chattahoochie River

J.C. Hyde grew up on the property and lived there, working the farm with a mule named 'Nell' until his death in 2004. The original log cabin, with its tongue in groove construction is still in place. Work to preserve the standing buildings got underway in early 2009. Many of the photographs here show the farm before that work began.
