Sightseeing
Saint Paul’s Church was established in 1750 by the Church of England at the site of Fort Augusta. The first three church buildings on the property were destroyed. The fourth building, erected in the 19th century, was burned in the Great Augusta Fire of 1916. Among the furnishings saved from the fire is the original baptismal font, the only relic from the first church. The Neo-Classical pillar and bowl, brought from England in 1751, is in the narthex (foyer), near the southwest entrance. Located in the church yard is a Celtic cross marking the location of the Fort. At its base is a cannon believed to have been brought in the 1730’s by General Oglethorpe from England to be used at Fort Augusta. This, together with the font, are the oldest colonial artifacts in the city. Phone: (706) 724-2485

At the beginning of the Civil War gunpowder supplies for the Confederate armies were insufficient. In 1861 Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, charged Colonel George Washington Rains with solving this issue by creating a local supply of gunpowder. When completed, the powder works lined the banks of the Augusta Canal for two miles. The most prominent of the buildings was the refinery, which resembled the British House of Parliament. Constructed directly in front of it was a tall smokestack in the shape of an obelisk, the only structure remaining today from the powder works. That one smokestack was left standing as a memorial to those who fought for the Confederacy. FREE

The Signers Monument is a granite obelisk that honors and marks the final resting place of two of Georgia's three signers of the Declaration of Independence. Located at the intersection of Greene and Monument Streets, the monument itself is a historical landmark, having stood in the same location since 1848. When built it fronted Augusta's old city hall, now the site of the modern Government Complex. It is a little known fact that the Masons placed a time capsule under the monument on the day they placed its cornerstone FREE
