Stone-Mountain is the name of a small city and state park, located in north-central Georgia. It's located just east of Atlanta on Highway 78 in DeKalb County. As of the 2000 census, the population of the village of Stone Mountain was 7,145. The town is named for the nearby Stone Mountain Park, which is a popular tourist attraction. Chartered in 1839, the village of Stone Mountain is the second oldest city in DeKalb County. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the town has the look and feel of the Old South. A variety of specialty shops and restaurants are mixed in with Victorian antebellum homes, a Civil War Museum, and the old granite train depot, which now serves as the City Hall. The village is located just outside the west gate to Stone Mountain State Park. The mountain is the world's largest mass of exposed granite. On the north side of the mountain is a high relief carving, depicting three Confederate soldiers, that has been called the "Eighth Wonder of the World." The park offers over 3,000 acres of forestland, pristine lakes and streams, gardens and hiking trails, fishing, swimming, boating, camping and golf. You can also ride a sky lift for a close-up view of the memorial carving, take a ride on a paddlewheel riverboat or ride a 1940s-era train that takes you on a five-mile excursion around the mountain. A 45-minute laser show, which has been dubbed the "world's longest running laser show" has been a spectacular tradition at Stone Mountain for over 26 years.
