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.

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

  • Great place to visit. Full of history.
  • Saw the sign while riding my road trip on us hwy 17 north. It was very educational and interesting. My guide was superb and she recite history and facts like an audio book. I learned some trivia and saw a lot of fabulous pieces. No you cannot take pictures so please be obliging. It took just over an hour. Well worth the stop. They have a bookstore also.
