The Georgia Agrirama is a living museum dedicated to life in a small farming community of the late 19th century.

Explore the farms. Listen to the barnyard sounds. Experience everyday 19th century-style life in the wiregrass village, and more. All structures have authentic furnishings of the period.

Friendly staff members share the history as they perform daily activities whether in farmhouses, fields, sawmill, turpentine still, schoolhouse, blacksmith’s shop, or the grist mill. Stroll up the main street to the Feed and Seed store, the print shop and the drug store.

Tour the original Victorian home of Tifton’s founder, Captain H. H. Tift. The Tift House was designed with curly pine molding, high ceilings, antique furnishings, and heart pine floors. It's furnished with a wood burning cook stove, Victorian paintings, ornate silk wallpaper, and fine china.

The grounds consist of five areas: a traditional farm community of the 1870s, an 1890s progressive farmstead, an industrial sites complex, rural town, national peanut complex, and the Museum of Agriculture Center. Over 35 structures have been relocated to the 95-acre site and faithfully restored or preserved. Costumed interpreters explain and demonstrate the life-style and activities of this time in Georgia’s history.
