The Historic Effingham-Ebenezer Scenic Byway showcases the history and beauty of one of Georgia’s eight original counties as well as the community of Ebenezer, which was founded by German Lutherans seeking religious freedom in the 1730s. The route follows 60 miles of state and local roads through the communities of Guyton, Springfield, and Rincon.
