The Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village is where history comes alive, recreating the farm and rural village life in Wiregrass Georgia from 1870-1910.  This self-guided tour shows students how people lived and worked in a rural Georgia wiregrass community in the last century.  Attractions include an operating water-powered grist mill, a one-room school, a print shop, a doctor’s office and much more.  Don’t forget the 1900s Drug Store which offers drinks, floats, delicious hand-dipped ice cream and lunch combos for sale.  For groups of any size and all ages, a self-guided, go-at-your-own-pace tour of our 95-acre site and museum makes for an exciting and educational visit.
