This is a small log cabin very close to downtown Eatonton. It is packed full of books and memorabelia. The Docents are very entertaining and full of great information. It is a great view into how things were done so many years ago.

I guess kids today do not get to read Uncle Remus stories any more. This presentation was very well done....

Best $5 admission ticket ! So worth about an hr of time. Covers the life of Joel Chandler Harris' from teenager in Eatonton to a writer for the Atalanta Constitution. For the literary or history curious. Not a place for small children.

Georgia brings Uncle Remus alive for young and old alike. She is so good that I would recommend scheduling a visit around her. The recent addition of the carvings take the museum to whole new level. Stop by today and plan to spend 2-3 hours.

We were welcomed by a docent named "Georgia" who pointed out that her mother was named "Virginia". Quickly we came to realize that Georgia was as much an attraction as the museum itself. She spun her own tales of growing up in Eatonton, Ga. and...More
