Georgia Museum of Agriculture


Justin, Wyatt, and I visited the Georgia Museum of Agriculture this past Saturday to check out the annual cane grinding event. Wyatt was coming down with a bad virus and I ended up with an eye infection (obviously not from the museum), but we had a great time anyway. Y’all don’t even know how hard it is to get used to not calling this place the Agrirama (which had been its name for the past 15 years or more).


From their website:

Georgia’s 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 life-style and activities of this time in Georgia’s history.


Here are some shots I snapped throughout the day.
