Georgia Museum of Agriculture

Company Description

Explore the farms. Listen to the barnyard sounds. Experience everyday 19th century-style life in our wiregrass village, and more. All structures have authentic furnishings of the period.

Friendly staff members share the history as they perform daily activities, whether in farmhouses, fields, sawmill, turpentine still, schoolhouse, blacksmith’s shop, or the grist mill. Stroll up the main street to the Feed and Seed store, the print shop, and the drug store. Revel in Georgia artist's talent in the Art Gallery or peruse through the Country Store for that special gift or old-fashioned treat. 

Tour the original Victorian home of Tifton’s founder, Captain H. H. Tift. The Tift House was designed with curly pine molding, high ceilings, antique furnishings, and heart pine floors. It’s furnished with a wood-burning cookstove, Victorian paintings, ornate silk wallpaper, and fine china.

ABAC's Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village opened as the Agrirama on July 4, 1976. The grounds consist of five areas: a traditional farm community of the 1870s, an 1890s progressive farmstead, an industrial sites complex, rural town, national peanut complex, and the Museum of Agriculture Center. Over 35 structures have been relocated to the 95-acre site and faithfully restored or preserved. Costumed interpreters explain and demonstrate the lifestyle and activities of this time in Georgia’s history.

The Georgia Museum of Agriculture is an immersive experience into the agrarian and cultural traditions of the 19th century American South. Take a glimpse into the innovative and storied history of the Wiregrass region of Southern Georgia through hands-on learning experiences and a sweeping landscape of historic sites and artifacts.
