Discovering Stone Mountain Museum at Memorial Hall

Sacred ground, landmark, refuge, meeting place, home: Stone Mountain has been many things to many people. Discovering Stone Mountain Museum features artifacts and stories that span 12,000 years, from ancient civilizations that lived on the mountain to the present-day park. Learn about Native Americans and pioneer settlers. See how the community was affected by the Civil War and how Stone Mountain granite helped build the local economy.

The Confederate Memorial on Stone Mountain is the largest relief carving in the world.
