Georgia Agrirama, the State's Living History Center, first opened to the public on July 1, 1976. Today, Agrirama consists of four distinct areas: traditional farm community of the 1870's, progressive farmstead of the 1890's, industrial sites complex, and a rural town. Over 35 structures have been relocated to the 95 acre site and faithfully restored or preserved as they appeared at the turn of the century. Costumed interpreters are on location daily to explain and demonstrate the lifestyle and activities of the period. Each year, additional structures and artifacts are being acquired and restored for visitors to enjoy.
