Bennett Place State Historic Site
Tu to Sa from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PMThis otherwise regular homestead came into prominence owing to the American Civil War. It was at this farm, where Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston and Union General William T. Sherman signed the papers pertaining to the surrender of the Confederate troops, thereby ending the fierce Civil War. Now, it is known as the Bennett Place State Historic Site and is open to visitors.
