Explore the farm. Listen to the barnyard sounds. See bacon and ham curing in the smokehouse and preserved vegetables in the canning shed. Experience everyday 19th century-style farm-like activities, from planting and harvesting to cooking, spinning, quilt making, and more. All structures have authentic furnishings of the period.

Friendly staff members share the history as they perform daily activities - whether in farmhouses, fields, sawmill, turpentine still, school house, blacksmith's shop, or the grist mill. Stroll up Main Street to the Feed and Seed store, the print shop and drug store.

  • We had a great morning at the Museum. We came early before it got too hot. Really enjoyed several interpreters including Stephan, Mrs. Cosper and Mrs. Cody in the Gibbs House. We also rode the train w...  more »

  • A step back in time, very informative. Tom at the grist mill was the most interactive. You could tell that he loves his job. Give yourself plenty of time to see and experience everything. We went at the end of the day and will have to go back. A great place to spend the day.
  • This place makes history so much fun for those who don't find history as fun. I loved all the old buildings, and machinery. My kids loved the animals and the old fashioned sweets and all the wide open spaces, and the train! We all loved being able to try out things fur ourselves how they did a thing like chopping wood, or spinning wool. Great fun for the whole family!!
  • The 4th of July Picnic and Fireworks event was great. Small entrance fee per vehicle, but worth the experience. Family friendly and fun for all. Vendors on site for food and drinks.
  • Wonderful little historic village with interactive activities even for older kids! My 13 year old daughter was sooo impressed by Tommy Cook, the Gristmill operator...she sat down her iPhone! That's pretty impressive for any parent this day and age! The Gristmill was our first stop after getting off of the old nostalgic train ride. Mr. Cook was very knowledgeable about the operation of the mill and gave us " a hands on learning experience we will never forget! We would have to say, the experience at the museum was nice but, he made it incredible! The Root beer floats and peach ice cream at the Pharmacy/store was great! If you are thinking of a great place to spend the afternoon and reconnect with your family/ kids, I would highly suggest the ga museum.
  • We enjoyed this living museum. Very educational. All the folks there explaining the rich history, were very pleasant. I wish I could say the same about the young lady we got our wrist bans from in the store. We felt like we were imposing on her.
