The history of the Lake Russell Wildlife Management Area (LRWMA) in Northeast Georgia is full of interesting stories about the people who once lived there. We hope to obtain and document more of the history of the people who lived there between the time the land was purchased from the Cherokee Nation in 1804 until the land was owned by the US Forest Service in the late 40's.
