Very helpful staff. Good genealogy section. Found quite a bit of family history in the area. Interesting and good hints for other places to search for information on our family.

My kids love this place. They love looking at all the cool historical displays, arrowheads, old army uniforms from Civil War days. Lots of great memories abound here.

This is a very nice example of the history of Wilkes County and Washington Ga. from the Revolutionary War through WW2. The exhibits are really nice. This is a self guided tour so you can take your time. And the home is beautiful.

This particular Washington site is a "must see". Beautiful Tiffany window, a lot of history, very enjoyable, especially if you a taking the tour with "Miss Fanny". Very knowledgeable and informative.
