  • Wow! I took my two boys a few weeks back. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted enthusiastically and warmly which was nice. There weren’t as many buildings as I remember, but the two very friendly and helpful young people working in the welcome center informed us they are only in Phase 1 of moving everything from Lumpkin. The churches were very well kept and nice to see they were being preserved. The interpreters were great, knew their stuff, and did an excellent job. The blacksmith exhibit and Indian interpreter were really cool. We didn’t buy anything there, but the gift shop was incredibly impressive and featured a lot of really cool regional books and items. My only complaint is the heat (which isn’t Westville’s fault obviously) and the explicit language used by one of the employees (the older one with the straw hat) in the welcome center. I have two small kids and he clearly didn’t notice or care. But overall, a great experience! We will return for the Harvest Fest in November when the weather is cooler!
  • Awesome place to come and learn the history of this small town!! The staff was very nice and helpful. Can't wait for them to complete the 2nd phase, so I can go back!!!
