This is Georgia's official museum of agriculture, a living history museum set during the 1870 - 1899 focal period.
Better than any place in the country that I'm aware of, The Georgia Agrirama depicts the transition from pre-mechanized farming to modern day agricultural.
The working farm and village include mule farming with the necessary subsistence skills such as quilting, churning, canning, etc. The village is a complex system of cotton ginning, turpentine processing, saw milling, grist milling and the merchant support enterprises that were ubiquitous in the small farming communities of the late 19th century. There is a working steam tram which meanders through the site with visitors on board.
The Georgia Museum of Agriculture is maintained and operated by The University of Georgia's flagship agricultural institution, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. A stop-over to visit the Agrirama is well worth the time and meager cost and may well be a more memorable vacation experience than days at one of the "seen-one-seen-them-all" theme parks. No mouse suits here, just good hosts who well represent the neighborly hospitality of a bygone time.
