Westville held our groundbreaking ceremony in Columbus on Oct. 12
If you were unable to attend, here are the speakers.
Historic Westville, a museum of Southern history and culture, will redefine “living history” by providing experiences that transform the way we think about the past, and remind us that history lives in our thoughts, actions, and understanding of the present. Re-opening at our new location in late 2018, Historic Westville will embody the history of the 19th century South, a very pivotal and turbulent period in American history. Our 30 historic structures and over 5,000 artifacts will support the historic experience at our new site on South Lumpkin road in Columbus, GA.
Westville will introduce visitors to the diverse group of people who settled in the Chattahoochee River Valley during the 19th century and explore their ideas, customs, and ways of living. Through exhibits, tours and hands-on experiences, Westville will help the visitor see forward and backward in time and gain a new understanding of the forces, and peoples that shaped the South and formed the basis of who we are today.
