“Don't overlook this display in Americus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

I have been to the Global Village 3 or 4 times. It is a great destination if you are interested in architecture, especially the look of houses that are well-suited for their locale/environments around the world. They even include hand-made furniture that will be of interest to those with an interest in primitive furniture.

And, of course, the display is very interesting if you are a supporter of Habitat.
