Meadow Garden was the last home of George Walton, one of the youngest signers of the Declaration of Independence. Walton served as a delegate to the Continental Congress, a Colonel in the First Georgia Militia, Governor of Georgia (1779-80 & 1789-90), U. S. Congressman, Chief Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court, and United States Senator.
Thanks to the efforts of the Daughters of the American Revolution, who still maintain the site today this important vestige of our early history was saved from the demolition in 1901. It is Georgia’s oldest house museum and one of the top attractions in Augusta.
