With peaceful rural character and 65 miles of pastoral landscapes, the Enduring Farmlands Scenic Byway allows travelers to appreciate the efforts that the cities and counties in central Georgia have taken to preserve their small-town agricultural heritage. The byway winds through the historic towns of Hawkinsville, Pineview, Rochelle, and Abbeville. Farmlands along the byway produce a variety of colorful crops, including corn, cotton, peanuts, soybeans, peaches, blueberries, and grapes. This homey byway houses scenic pecan groves, horse and cattle pasture lands, farmers markets and festivals, Civil War heritage sites, and the Ocmulgee River. Travelers can also appreciate the historic architecture of several notable churches, the Lawrence Bennett Harness Horse racetrack, and Hawkinsville’s Old Opera House.
