Charles Lindbergh Monument
Reviewed August 9, 2012

not terribly exciitng, but since you'll pass it anyway on the road between Americus and Andersonville you should stop so you can say you've been! Site of Lindbergh's first solo flight. It'll take you 5 minutes.

We did not know that Lindbergh's first flight was from this area. It's only a monument, so a quick picture and that's all.

Quick visit. Monument is located at a small regional airport. Lindbergh bought his first airplane here for $500, a Curtis Jenny.

The Charles Lindbergh Monument at Souther Field commemorates Charles Lindbergh's first solo flight there in 1923. A statue of Lindbergh on an airplane wing stands atop a pedestal at the front side of a small airfield just 4 or 5 miles from downtown Americus, north on Hwy 49. A historial marker also documents the event. It's a nice place to stop on a pretty day.

The usual brown historical attraction road signs are posted on Hwy. 49 just north and south of the turn, but it's not clear that you should turn on the road to the Souther air field. Another brown road sign at that point would help tourists find the monument without passing it and then backtracking.

This is not a huge attraction, but if you enjoy historic places, it's worth stopping for a few minutes. Small planes parked nearby are also of interest.
