Westville is a museum of southern history and culture moving to Columbus from Lumpkin Georgia, expecting to open in late 2018. Our buildings and artifacts date to the 19th century and have for years served to outline the historical time frame we interpret but in today’s world, a more circular study of people and events enables museum visitors to relate the past to the present and enhances communities by creating safe places to respectfully discuss sensitive topics. Historic Westville will have new interpretive initiatives that present the diverse stories of the past. The lives of all southern peoples will be addressed throughout Westville and shown to be inextricably linked, though their experiences diverse.
