Tribute to the heritage of Joel Chandler Harris and his immortal stories. Housed in three reconstructed slave cabins. Quick stop but we'll worth the $5. Books available. Don't miss this heritage site.

Such a darling museum. So many artifacts that bring back memories of childhood stories. The replica of housing is impressive. Worthwhile for any age.

This is a small out of the way museum dedicated to Noel Chandler Harris. The “guide” at the museum really makes or breaks your visit. We had Ms Georgia who regaled us with stories about Harris as well as stories of her life growing up...More
