프로그램

The tour begins meeting Johnny, a descendant of local enslaved ancestors & lifelong resident of the area at the oldest standing structure in DeKalb County, the historic Lyon's House site. Here you tour the grounds, experience the living area of slaves, & listen to rich stories passed down through generations. You gain an understanding of what it was like for families to live on small Southern Farms before the Civil War. You will also enjoy the best scenic views of Panola Mtn that only a local would know.
Next drive along a paved two-lane road to the start of an old stagecoach road, now a trail. Continue the trail for .25 miles as you get an understanding of Flat Rock. Then you turn a corner and enter a wooded area dotted with gravestones. This is the Flat Rock Historic Cemetery with at least 202 interred individuals, many simple unidentified gravestones. We usually do not visit the cemetery in summer because this area has ticks & overgrown with ivy. Please communicate beforehand that you want to visit the cemetery if it is summer as you will have to make sure to dress appropriately-pants, long socks, tennis shoes. Some interred were born enslaved & freed after the Civil War.
We will also visit the site of the first AA Methodist church site of the Flat Rock Community. And we will end the tour at the Flat Rock Archive. This is a small museum highlighting local AA history.

I am Johnny, the tour guide at the Flat Rock Archives located in the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area. I had the vision to create an archive that would preserve African American history in DeKalb County since the 1980s. I have been recognized through numerous awards where I specialize in the preservation of rural GA African American history. Many stories have been passed down through my family for generations that discuss the days of slavery through Jim Crow, the founding of the KKK on the top of Stone Mountain, to tenant farming and working in the local granite quarries.

I've lived in DeKalb County my entire life (I'm 28) and only last year (2020) had I heard about Flat Rock. I knew I had to visit! I waited on family and friends to come with me, but a year later (3 days after my 28th bday :) ), I decided to just go by myself. I am so happy that I did. I've learned so much and this experience has allowed me to understand more black history in my own area that the schools did not teach. I will continue to tell people to visit, and I hope that anybody reading this will too. Oh, and Johnny is awesome and very knowledgeable!! His own family has history in Flat Rock, so it was like seeing/hearing someone's Ancestry.com story in real life. I hope he is able to continue this for a long time.
