Fort Valley MainStreet will enchant you with its variety of businesses and cultural and historical attractions. The historic district/downtown strikes a beautiful balance of preserving the heritage and welcoming modernization simultaneously.
One of the historical sites you'll be able to visit is the Troutman House. This house was one of the first stately homes built around the city around 1855. The Troutman is an excellent example of the Greek Revival style architecture. Historically it was a place near which the original Peach Blossom Festivals took place from 1922 to 1926. Today the building is used by Downtown Development Authority and MainStreet, the Georgia Peach Festival, and serves as the Welcome Center as well.
The Fort Valley Museum is another great way to get in touch with Fort Valley's history. It is a complex of several buildings preserved by the local community. Expect exhibits like The Old Brick Church (from around 1830), The One-Room School, The Seven Fountains Resort, and many more.
Let's travel back to the modern days. We've already mentioned the Georgia Peach Festival - one of the most anticipated events in the country, comparable to Mardi Gras or Cali Rose Festival. It is a fun event celebrating the harvesting season and the importance of the peach industry in the story of the city and state. Georgia used to be known as the Peach Capital of the world. Today the production scale has decreased; however, Fort Valley still remains the most significant peach-producing area in the state. Expect a lot of music, parades, peach-eating contests, arrays of vendors with delicious locally-grown foods and craft beverages, and lots of people from all over the country and world.
To fully immerse yourself in the identity of this beautiful city, visit attractions like Lane Southern Orchards or Pearson Farm. Both provide a great insight into the area's agricultural history by hosting self-guided and organized tours around packing facilities, peach, pecan, and strawberry orchards, giving great dining options and showcasing the stunning natural scenery of the region.
