This small treasure was so unexpected! If you want to get to know this town, even the whole county (Troup), start here. I think a quick visit here should be almost mandatory for anyone moving to the area! In the space of an hour, or so, you can get a snapshot of all that has gone into the making of... More

Lagrange is a small town of about 32,000. However, we have an interesting history, and this museum highlights some of it. You are free to just roam around and read the things that interest you. It's a small museum and worth a bit of your time.

I was absolutely astounded when I visited the Troup County Historical Society Archives Department located in the Legacy Museum in LaGrange, Georgia. I arrived late in the afternoon on Friday, April 22, 2016, and was slightly panicked that I would not have time to get any information before the museum would close for the weekend. Well, I must say, Mr.... More

My husband and I usually try to visit the historical museums of cities we visit. This museum was a little above what we normally expect from a small town. We spent about 30 minutes exploring the archives and gained some interesting information about the history of the area.

I was suprised by how well done and put together everything was for a small town museum. It had nice displays and exhibits that touched on several decades of its history. Visitors have access to the first floor.

We were in town to see the Christmas at Callaway Gardens, and were looking for other things to do while in the area. Went to the museum in the afternoon. Full of pictures and artifacts from the area. Spent about 30 minutes there, and would have stayed longer, but we had to leave to go back home. Worth a stop.... More

They have an impressive collection of historical items considering the size of the town and the facility. I grew up in this part of the state but learned much during my visit. The staff is very helpful if you have questions but you can also go at your own pace.

Lots of interesting and historical artifacts professionally displayed in a well organized setting. A special exhibit on golf would please even those not engaged in the sport.
