The City of Watkinsville today announced that it is under contract with property owners Mark and Mitch Thomas to secure and preserve the largest parcel of undeveloped land in the city, the 100-acre Thomas family farm. The Thomas property, located just inside the city limits along Simonton Bridge Road, includes more than 1/3 of a mile of Calls Creek frontage, more than 60 acres of open pasture, 33 acres of woodlands, two ponds comprising approximately five acres, and one of Oconee County’s most iconic views.
