Under the direction of the late Thomas G. Little, historical Architect, Midway Museum, a raised cottage style house typical of those built on the coast in the 18th century, was patterned after homes which stood at Sunbury, Dorchester Village and at Riceboro. The Stage Coach Inn in Riceboro was sketched by Basil Hall on his trip through Georgia in 1828 and described as follows: “a frame-house, being made of timbers squared and fastened together, and afterwards covered with planks at the sides and ends, while the roof is either boarded or protected by shingles, a sort of wooden slate, two feet in length, and six inches wide. Almost all the houses in that part of the country have verandahs, or what they call ‘piazzas’.” Since its completion, the Midway Museum has served as the pattern for numerous private reconstructions and renovations.Put Midway Museum at the forefront of your travel plans using our Midway trip itinerary maker site.
Exhibits, documents, and furnishings placed in the Museum commemorate and reanimate the love of Liberty which distinguishes the Midway Society from the Colonial period through its last annual meeting in December, 1865

The hostess was extremely knowledgeable. So much history in Midway Georgia. Photographs were not allowed or I would post. I highly recommend.
Took a tour of the Museum in late July 2019. I found the history filled narrative was more than worth the minimal fee. I purchased a book on existing and am truly enjoying the stories of this portion of Georgia running up to the Civil War.
