When you enter the building, the Childre Family Grand
Lobby is a longhouse inspired by Native American architecture. Our
wonderful award-winning film about the Southeastern Indians and the Hall of the
Ancients depicts 12,000 years of Native American life through artifacts,
dioramas, and interactive computer programs. The story of the Trail of Tears is
shown in a 4-minute film and maps. Also on display is an extensive collection of
contemporary Native American artwork, including paintings, baskets,
sculpture and pottery. A unique collection featuring tools from more than
100 crafts is displayed in the Sellars Gallery of Historic Tools.
In our Appalachian Settlement, pioneer log cabins, a blacksmith shop
and farm buildings tell the story of Georgia's early residents. Adults and
children both enjoy our Nature Trail featuring many species of native plants. The Appalachian Settlement is open only to paid visitors, and its log cabins are open only for guided tours or special events.
