The gazebo-topped Indian Mound is perhaps the best known feature of Hardman Farm. The Nacoochee Mound is a burial site and was probably used long before the Cherokee inhabited the area. The tree-lined road leading from the Visitor Center to the house is a remaining portion of the historic Unicoi Turnpike. This 200-mile road went from Toccoa to western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee. It began as a buffalo trail, then a Native American trading route. The 173 acre Hardman Farm Estate offers self guided tours, and a guided tour that includes the Nineteenth Century mansion.
