This was an anniversary yr as a result of 70 years in the past, GB and Vonceil Williams, the unique proprietors, paid $5,000 for what was then 73 acres of farmland in rural Cobb County from Tommy Smith (the namesake for Floyd Middle School). Through the yr,s the family has added to the tract, giving it the present 112 acres. Besides horse boarding, the property boasts a stocked lake open to the general public for fishing and boating.
