  • Saw the sign for this adorable little cabin and our love for Uncle Remus compelled us to stop. Learned so much about the talented creator of Beer Fox, Beer Rabbit and such. Very small admission fee. Thank You Eatenton for preserving this to share.
  • If you are a fan of Brer Bear, Brer Fox, and Brer Rabbit, this is a must see museum. If you are lucky enough to be there when Ms. Georgia is working the museum then the experience will be complete. No offense to the other curators, I have not been there with anyone but Georgia. It is a small museum but it is packed full of interesting artifacts. Cap off your trip with a meal at Smith's Coastal Grill and a drive through the historical district.
  • How cool is this?
  • The tales by Ms Georgia made it that much more enjoyable
