Near Scenic Highway & Langley Ave. Blink while cruising down Scenic Highway and you'll miss the antebellum remnants of the Hyer-Knowles Lumber and Brick factory. Chimney Park is nestled in a narrow hollow between two bluffs. The historical marker consists of little more than a bench and is surrounded by magnolias and live oak. However, its history is a scorcher. Before the Civil War, the mill employed as many as 600 and produced about 55 million feet of lumber. After a "scorch earth" order by the Confederate general, the once thriving hotspot burned to a crisp.
