1. Napier House and Indian Racetrack site
The remains of the Indian Race track are still in tact and visible and mostly undisturbed for just short of 300 years. Many artifacts remain in and around the site. It is about 1 mile oval track that was used as the Georgia Historical marker states. it would be interesting to see some interest in this area being preserved for future studies. It was also the site of several events in the War Between The States during the Battle of Chickamauga, Ga. Battlefield.
