This is a small log cabin very close to downtown Eatonton. It is packed full of books and memorabelia. The Docents are very entertaining and full of great information. It is a great view into how things were done so many years ago.

I guess kids today do not get to read Uncle Remus stories any more. This presentation was very well done....

Best $5 admission ticket ! So worth about an hr of time. Covers the life of Joel Chandler Harris' from teenager in Eatonton to a writer for the Atalanta Constitution. For the literary or history curious. Not a place for small children.

I was not aware of the background of where these unique stories came from. It is a fascinating reflection of pre-civil war days culture. Hopefully Virginia is there to help tell the story to you.
