I arrived shortly after the museum opened, which I recommend. It was suggested to me to start outside first, which I did. Good idea, as it was a bit warm in the sun. Most of the buildings are not air conditioned, but they had a nice breeze blowing through. Not all of the buildings were open, but of the ones... 更多
The grist mill was an amazing experience. A group of three of my friends and I all got to help make a bag of grits! Tommy Cook was an great interpreter for the grist mill. The whole village was unforgettable with amazing buildings and structures. Mr. Cook taught us all the skills to use the grist mill. This was an... 更多
The kids enjoyed it a lot. Not sure if it is the end of the year or just away from the classroom. We did not ride train, but ate lunch at Drug Store. The staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our day. The combo meal with a scoop of yummy ice cream was awesome.
The students learned about how life was in the days of their great great grandparents. All of the employees were very knowledgeable! Mr. Tommy at the Grist Mill was the most entertaining. He allowed the students to participate and interact with the process of grinding corn into grits, filling the grits bags to the accurate weight, and sealing and date... 更多
It's a neat outing for kids and adults interested in an older way of life. The locomotive might be the best part, but there are plenty of other interesting areas. The blacksmith and woodworking areas were engaging with interesting conversation. If you're in the area and have 3 or 4 hours to explore the grounds, I recommend stopping in.
Really neat place. Walk back in time 100+ years and see and learn how people use to do things. Or at least as close as you can. Few of the facts they present aren't fully real. It depends on the area of the country. For example not all school teachers went home with a student for the week. Some lived... 更多
My husband and I were anxious to tour the village. We traveled over an hour to reach this attraction from where we stayed. Because we did not know that there was no provision for shade for pets, we took our dog with us. There were no shade trees and no provision for keeping one out of the hot sun. Needless... 更多
Very fine museum of an agricultural community in the late 1800s early 1900s. These are authentic buildings, houses, grist mill, etc. No reproductions. One of only two true steam engines still running in Georgia. Special activity days are exceptional. Very educational.
