Business Break - Westville

 


 

Westville is a living history museum village with over 30 authentically restored and furnished antebellum buildings and 82 acres of land that include the village, pasture, and fields. The buildings were moved onto the museum site to create an authentic village environment. Westville preserves, demonstrates, and interprets the life and culture of pre-1860 west Georgia. This is accomplished by maintaining an authentic village environment, collecting and preserving artifacts, demonstrating traditional work skills, and providing tours, workshops, and special events. For special events, "Townspeople" in period dress demonstrate woodworking, baking, pottery turning, blacksmithing, and other skills from the mid-19th century. Buildings include a court house, church, school, stores, craft shops, residences, and cotton plantation buildings.
