  1850 Street Scene
by MatthewMetcalfe

Westville is a fictional town in Lumpkin Georgia that is entirely composed of buildings built in the 1800's. The entire town is Pre-1850 and they's built it to reflect a South Georgia Town of that Era.

People are wearing period clothing and performing tasks as they would have in the mid-1800's. It's a great place to stop and see the Old South. The town has several homes, a pottery, a blacksmith, a wagon repair depot, gardens, a Whiskey Still and a cotton gin with the only functional animal powered Cotton Bailer in the country.

While you are the area, take the journey to Providence Canyon as well. They are too close together to miss.

Directions: In Lumpkin Georgia which is located about an hour south of Columbus. Take Hwy 27 and follow the signs.
