Where are we going today?

Historic Westville is a living history museum which depicts an 1850 west Georgia village. We have created Westville so that you can experience a community in the twenty-first century similar to the ones in which our ancestors lived in the middle of the nineteenth century.

Westville has over 30 authentically furnished pre-Civil War buildings including Homes
Stores, Workshops, Churches, Courthouse and School.

Our townspeople are in 1850s dress and you can talk with them about life in the old days. Regular admission includes a character guided tour.

Any Top Tips?

Westville is an 1850s living history museum village. In the summer it is hot and humid. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes as the primary way to visit is on foot. In July and August the gnats are out and will pester you. Bring insect repellent or you may pick up some individual packs in our museum store..

Need a little extra help?

Most of the historic buildings have ramps to help those needing extra help to enter and enjoy the facilities. We have one electric scooter available free of charge, but on a first-come-first-served basis. Call ahead to reserve the scooter. Also, we have sandy streets and it is very difficult for wheelchairs to negotiate - - the narrow wheels get bogged down in many places. On Saturdays we have a mule wagon that can carry guests on an overview of the village..

Baby Facilities

The public restroom has a changing station..

Can I get one of those?

Our museum store has a variety of items to pick up as memories of your visit. We have a good supply of crafts and items made by Westville interpreters - - brooms, quilts, soap, candles, and wood and iron items..

    One of my favorite places to visit. It is very kid friendly, and the staff is awesome. You learn something new every time you visit, very educational.
