Georgia Historical Marker:

HOPETON-ON-THE-ALTAMAHA HOME OF JAMES HAMILTON COUPER

Hopeton Plantation, of which Altama is a part, lies about 1.4 miles West of here. A model rice and sugar Plantation of the early 19th century, described in books by several travelers from Europe, Hopeton is best remem- bered as the home of James Hamilton Couper. "A pioneer in the agricultural and industrial development of Georgia and the South," James Hamilton Couper was an archaeologist, a geologist, a conchologist, architect and historian - a man whose abilities and accom- plishments would be recognized in any time. 063-23 GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION
