Locate It: Crescent Farm Rock Barn

Northwest Georgia Mountains

Crescent Farm Rock Barn

This Rock Barn was constructed in 1906 by Augustus Lee Coggins. It is believed to
be the only existing rock barn in Georgia. The Barn and the Georgian Revival style
main house across the street (former Wellstar medical office), constitutes the core
of the original 400-acre Crescent Farm which included the Cherokee High School
campus. Originally a stable for Coggins’ harness-racing horses, it was one of three
barns on Coggins’ cotton and horse farm.

The Rock Barn is constructed of stone quarried on the farm from the banks of the
Etowah River. It was built to be fire-resistant because it housed valuable race
horses, including Abbedale, who is listed in the Harness Racing Hall of Fame.

Now a wedding/special events venue.
