There are no remains of this one - only signage. The sign provides an illustration, along with the dimensions of the Shoupade, and the defensive line.
Continuing along the path, the ground levels for a small stretch leading you between a chainlink fence on the left and hedges on the right. Enclosed along this path, on the left, are the remains of a trench covered by overgrown brush and debris.
Leaving the three foot-wide path, you come into an open field. On a recent Saturday morning, a couple of women walked their dogs in the area.
Taking a left around the corner brings you to an artillery redan. This is the first of the two that were built and remaining. According to the sign, “it is an earth structure designed to protect two cannons.”
At the top of the hill, in the middle of the field, is a fenced-in area marking and preserving the remaining Shoupade in the park.
Walk out to the edge of the property and you will see Atlanta’s skyline - downtown, Midtown and Buckhead. Near this Shoupade you’ll also see a fireplace and an old-covered well.
This two-acre pocket park was added to the Register of Historic Places in March 28, 2017.
