Georgia's cultural landscape: overview
@ New Georgia Encyclopedia
Lyon, Elizabeth A
DescriptionEncyclopedia article providing an overview of Georgia's cultural landscape. Georgia's cultural landscape is a product of the distinct history of the state, of what has been built, of what has been preserved, and of past and future developments. The ordinary, or vernacular, environment in which its people live, work, and play represents many layers of time and human activity. From the coastal settlements, marshes, and beaches through the sandy hills and wiregrass agricultural areas of middle Georgia to the sprawling cities of the Piedmont and the mountains of north Georgia, the diverse qualities of the natural and manmade environment are a fundamental part of the lives of all Georgians.
