About Historic Westville

Location:

3557 South Lumpkin Road, Columbus, GA 31903, US

Mission Statement

Historic Westville redefines "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.

Description

Historic Westville is an accumulation of nearly a century of preserving the past. Several of our buildings and artifacts were first collected by John Word West of Jonesboro, Georgia, in the 1920s for "The Fair of 1850," an outdoor museum showcasing Georgian vernacular architecture and folkways. Westville Historic Handicrafts was formed in 1966 to purchase much of this original collection and move it to Lumpkin, Georgia, where the museum continued to grow as it became a haven for endangered buildings of the area.

In December 2015, Westville closed its Lumpkin location in anticipation of a grueling two-year move to Columbus, GA. The museum reopened to the public on June 22, 2019.
