29 Washington History comes alive in Wilkes County, dating back to the Revolutionary War. The town contains several historical buildings and homes—and you can stay at the Fitzpatrick Hotel dating back to 1898—but be sure to stop at Southern Scratch bak- ery shop where delicious sweet creations are made, such as sea salt chocolate chip cookies and pecan brownies made with local farm eggs. Albany This southwest Georgia town features many restaurants and attractions but also two farms that offer delicious eating outside the city limits. Calhoun Produce in Ashburn serves up meals as well as lets visitors pick strawber- ries on their acreage, enjoy wagon rides and visit the honey bee house. White Oak Pastures in nearby Bluffton has been in operation since 1866. Today, the fam- ily grows organic vegetables and raises ani- mals that are humanely treated and grass fed. Visitors can enjoy a tour of the farm plus sample their fares. I chose the Bluffton Burger, which married a six-ounce patty with grilled onions, seasonal greens, mozzarella cheese and dressings. Augusta Home to The Masters and birthplace of James Brown, Augusta has a wide variety of local, sustainable and seasonal products used in The Bee's Knees' varied dishes. There's coconut curry panang, chicken and waffles, tempura tacos and decadent margaritas. Stay at the sophisticated century-old Partridge Inn and be sure to take in an Augusta Canal Boat Cruise and a historic trolley tour of the city. Statesboro You're one of the family at The Beaver House, where everything is served boarding house style at the turn-of-the-century former home. Large platters of food arrive featuring great southern dishes: fried chicken, pork loin, fried shrimp, scratch biscuits made with cream, black-eyed peas over rice with Vidalia onions, green beans, yams and, of course, sweet Georgia tea. "If you're ever in town, don't come to the Beaver House if you're not that hungry," said Clay Beaver, fourth-generation owner. The same could be said for the entire state of Georgia! Mimi Maumus Cupcake spread at the Cake Bakery and Cool Beanz Espresso Bar in Statesboro. Meals are served family style at the Beaver House in Statesboro. The historic Beaver House in Statesboro. Peaches for sale at the Statesboro Farmer's Market.
