The Hart State Outdoor Recreation Area, also known as Hart State Park and Hart Park, is a community 147 acres (59 ha) natural park located at 330 of Hart Park Road, in Hartwell, Georgia, in northeast Georgia. The park is named after the American Revolutionary War heroine Nancy Hart, who lived in the Georgia frontier, and it was her devotion to freedom that has helped make her name commonplace in the Georgia upcountry today.[1]
