A-Z April Blog Challenge - Z is for Zebulon, GA

The last day of the A-Z April Challenge has arrived and my traveling days are done until Summer starts.  Todays letter is "Z" and my place is Zebulon, GA.  It is located a short 45 minute drive from Atlanta.  Pike County has a rural atmosphere and simple, relaxing lifestyle and to me this makes it a gem waiting to be discovered. If you are looking for a place where you feel like you stepped back in time, visit Pike County. The county hosts numerous historic building including the courthouse on the square, the old train depot, the whiskey bonding barn(used as a wedding venue....that is why I was in Zebulon in the first place) , the circa 1900 jail in Molena and the Strickland building in Concord. The Meriwether-Pike County Scenic Byway celebrates the unique legacy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in west Central Georgia. During the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, FDR came to Warm Springs in hopes the therapeutic warm springs would help improve the condition of his legs, damaged by polio. This highway, a 55 mile route from Meriwether County to Pike County, is intended to provide an alternate route through the more beautiful areas of the state and to allow travelers to get off of the interstate highway and enjoy the rural atmosphere and hospitality that only Georgia can provide.   Enjoy the music of the area. The Hollenville Opry House is open on Saturdays for a mix of country, bluegrass and gospel music. The Williamson Music Barn has an informal jam session on Friday evenings and a stage show on Saturday evenings featuring gospel, country and bluegrass.  Shri Ram Chandra Mission - one of only four ashrams in the United States, this meditation center provides seminars, workshops and meditation training. Located just outside of Molena, on the side of a wooded mountain, come see if meditation is right for you during their Open House every Sunday.
Christmas in the country! Pike County combines a delightful atmosphere for the holidays. Enjoy the many Christmas parades, programs and events that take place during the month of December as we celebrate the season! Enjoy a “Jingle Bell Ride” with the Pike County Horse Club in December!  Zebulon was an interesting blast from the past.  If you ever pass through....stop.  It is a nice walk back into history.
