Visit Autrey Mill
Summerour House

Located on 46 acres of ravine forest and historic past, this nature preserve's two miles of walking trails wind past a scenic creek with rocky shoals, spring seeps, mature trees, wildflowers, native plants, and a variety of animal life.

A Heritage Village has been created with four buildings original to the site and four landmark structures moved from nearby properties. This village and its related exhibit pieces provide an understanding of this area's proud rural heritage from the mid 1800s to the mid 1900s.

Our Visitor Center houses animal exhibits of turtles, frogs, and snakes, and dioramas of native mammals and birds.

Grounds are open every day from 8am to dusk.

The Visitor Center is open Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm
closed on major holidays

There is no charge for entrance to the grounds.

A reminder of Nature Preserve rules

~ Dogs must be on a leash at all times.
~ No bikes or motorized vehicles are allowed on the nature trails.
~ Stay on the trails to avoid damage to the preserve's habitats.
~ Keep voices low so all can enjoy the Preserve's peaceful setting.

We had a great time at the Alpharetta Festival

Thanks to all who stopped by to visit with us at the Alpharetta Scarecrow Festival on Saturday, Oct. 4th. Autrey Mill had fun activities near the log cabin to let children experience life of the settlers and local farm families - including making corn husk dolls, trying games and passtimes from the olden days, and even laundry-day chores.
