The Georgia Cotton Museum includes the slave issues and how their participation in the production of cotton contributed to the economy. It shows how farmers dealt with planting, controlling insects, prayed for rain and sunshine, and waited for the white fluff to appear at harvest time. How the farmers sold their cotton. The tools that they plowed, planted and harvested the cotton are on display as well as the weighing machinery and planters desk where farmers and ginners kept accurate records of the harvest.

  • Loved visiting this museum. It’s small, but Earl is an absolutely pleasure to learn from. He’s so knowledgeable, friendly and made the museum so fun for my kids. Definitely recommend to stop by and visit.
  • Uncle Earl knows his cotton he gave me a tour awhile back and explained they use to pick the cotton by hand he is knowledgeable and very understanding I would say if you visit to visit again he has good stories about the older days....
