The Farm at Wilkerson Mill was formerly known as the KHW Retreat, a club comprising the Knox-Harrisson and Wheat family, an African-American family whose ancestors were enslaved. The family purchased the plot of land to celebrate their legacy. On the site, there are commemoration markers dating back 100 years highlighting their family’s resilience. Today, the rolling outdoor space is the perfect natural retreat with rustic charm. Amenities include a large covered pavilion, on-site restrooms, park-style grills, smokehouse, agriculture greenhouse/high tunnel, and fire pit. Just 25 minutes outside of Downtown Atlanta, Wilkerson Mill is in proximity to the city but still has that off-the-beaten-path feel. The grounds have been used for movie shoots, but also plays host to private parties, family reunions, weddings, corporate outings, and group campouts.
