The Jake Sluder Heritage Park located next to OHC features a memorial brick walkway, heirloom vegetable garden, native plants and three outdoor exhibit pieces: The Manly Mobile Jail, Hardie-Tynes Steam Engine, and Verner Wellhouse.

The Louise Russell Alexander Children's Corner is a creative space for children to discover and explore the heritage of Oconee County.
