Brief History
Formerly known as the Bullard-Stockton property, the 112 acre Green Meadows Preserve was purchased by Cobb County in 2008 with funds from the 2006 Parks Bond Referendum. The Bullard family bought and farmed the property until the late 1900’s.  Originally it was part of a 400 acre plantation owned by William and Piety Green. The site saw action in the Civil War Civil War. The National Trail of Tears Association has designated Green Meadows as a historical and educational Interpretive Site on the Trail of Tears Historic National Trail.

For information about the park and future plans, see the 'Friends of Green Meadows' website – www.greenmeadowspreserve.org.
