Native American Monument
Georgia's official monument to America's indigenous people is located in Colquitt on Highway 27. The 27-foot masterpiece sculpted by "humanitarian" artist, Peter Toth, pays tribute to the spirit of the Native Americans who inhabited this land long before Europeans arrived. The sculpture is carved from a red cedar log.
Hungarian born, Toth began a quest
30 + years ago to pay tribute to Native Americans by creating giant
sculptures entitled "Whispering Giants" in each of the 50 states. He has
completed almost 70 of the huge works of art.
Birdwatchers and nature lovers can enjoy a mile of trail and boardwalk meandering through cypress and wetland hard woods along beautiful Spring Creek.
