In July 2005, the Nash Farm Battlefield property was purchased by Henry County with the intent to serve as “a valuable cultural, historical and educational resource and protect and preserve greenspace,” according to the resolution authorizing condemnation of the property.
The 207-acre parcel was purchased for $8.2 million via eminent domain. The resolution notes the property was the site of battles and encampments during the Civil War “which has significant cultural and historical value and should be preserved for future generations.”
Since its purchase, the site has hosted numerous events including re-enactments, living history programs, weddings and holiday celebrations.
In February 2011, Friends of Nash Farm Battlefield, an all-volunteer group, opened the Nash Farm Battlefield Museum on the property. It housed a collection of artifacts unearthed on the property and numerous exhibits telling the story of the Nash family and the battle fought on Nash Farm and surrounding locations.
