There is an old rough hewn log fort replica off of the Chattahoochee. I thought it was interesting that they had 10 or 12 historic markers all around it and went to check it out. The fort was near a few peach trees at the time. One of the markers said that the fort was near a larger tree that they once stood under to see who could throw its peaches far enough to land into the river. They weren't sure if the fort was then named for the tree because of its fruit, or that they pitched the fruit from it into the river. Half the roads in Atlanta could have been named Pitchtree instead.
If you are able to check it out, Inside there are many colonial era artifacts and displays set up. It really took me back a few centuries and gave a good reflection from the early 1800s.
The only other thing that I thought was really neat to check out in Atlanta was Mile Post Zero. I was able to see that one before they moved it.
