COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Historic Westville has announced April events for the public to enjoy.

There’s always a quieter pace at Historic Westville - but through the pandemic, like everything else, it was a little too quiet.

But now, the experience is back open for field trips and family outings.

Historic Westville is sure to give you an experience of what life was like in the 1800′s state of Georgia.

“Lack of electronics is the first thing that comes to mind and we represent that in the village how things were human powered, person powered rather than motor powered,” said Julian Singer with Historic Westville. “That’s a major difference. It seems like people had more time on their hands to do different types of work around the village as well as be more collaborative. We try to represent the fact that the blacksmith, the carpenter and the leatherworker might work together on different projects.”

And now that opportunity is back again - open for visitors with a full slate of events.

“It’s been great having schools back. We’re pretty booked through the spring,” said Singer. “We still have some slots available in May, but we’re happy to have schools back full-time.”

Below is a list of events:

  • April 2 | Handmade Day
