Stone Mountain is 1683’ high. It contains the largest carving or relief in the world and the rock is the largest exposed granite stone in the world. The carving is a scene from the Civil War and includes President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. Stonewall Jackson. The carved surface measures three acres, larger than a football field.

The original carver is Gutzon Borglum but a dispute arose between Borglum and the managing association. He left and took all the sketches and models with him after completely only the head of Lee. Borglum went on to create the famous Mt . Rushmore (you can find pictures of Mt Rushmore on this site too).

At the site of Stone Mountain a typical plantation has been added by moving buildings from other sites across Georgia. They are set in period attire.
