Guided tours help make the Bible come alive as Old and New Testament narratives are recited. See the cities, mountains, and valleys where the events took place. Visitors leave with a better understanding of the land and times that have and continue to impact mankind.Truly a unique experience complemented by tall pines, flowers, bamboo, birds, turtles, and other wildlife.

Wow. Walking through this garden, I was struck by the amount of dedication it must have taken to achieve. I was also fascinated by the tour guide and his knowledge of history and etymology. Definitely worth checking out.

Worth the short side trip!
Don took me on a quick tour as I was short on time. He is very knowledgable and friendly and a very interesting person.

The posted info says no restrooms but there are some there.

Even if you are not religious, the peaceful walk and surroundings are a nice change of pace. There is a donation box but he never even mentioned money.

Stopped by to check this out and was pleasantly surprised NOTE- They are only open from March to November. This was an awesome place to visit and I'll be back in the spring to see it when the leaves are gone and the rivers are flowing. The grounds crew have built a very cool nature walk which tells the story of Jesus and the Bible very well. This attraction is in the middle of nowhere, but totally worth the trip.

Another note..... for those that are not from the south or the area, when you pass the locals on the two lane road, the locals will wave at you when you pass. Make sure you wave back. It's a part of the southern hospitality we hear so much about.
