Midway Museum

Reviewed By carsonguy - Carson City, Nevada

We were driving from Darien to Savannah with help from the Georgia AAA tour book and discovered this wonderful opportunity to learn more of Georgia's history. The docent greeted us promptly and was very knowledgeable about the artifacts within the museum and the adjacent Midway Church. We were informed that many local families had donated their heirlooms and that they are authentic to the period. A must for interested travelers.

Fort Morris Historic Site

The earthen works protected the port of Sunbury during the American Revolution and the War of 1812, and were later used as a Civil War Encampment. Museum has displays of civilian and military life during Georgia's Colonial, Revolutionary and Antebellum past.

Reviewed By Anthony P - Charleston, South Carolina

Fort Morris is an earthen fort on the edge of the marsh. The nearby town of Sunbury was a ghost town for much of the last two centuries, but rivaled Savannah at one time and was recognized by the British as being important, so much so they burned when they left. The fort is in great shape and you can clearly make out important features. The area also features a small museum that shows many artifacts from that revolutionary and 1812 period. This was a great little side adventure and one that I would recommend.

Midway Historic District

Eighteenth century church and cemetary built in a town originally settled by New England Puritans that was largely destroyed by British soldiers during the American Revolution.

Reviewed By MaestrosDarkling - Tampa, Florida

Midway seems like a small, unassuming town, that you could pass through - or walk around in and think you pretty much know everything there is to know about it. Take the tour! Seriously! Kitty is so knowledgeable about the history and people of Midway that you'll discover more than you thought possible. She made the tour interesting and spun the stories in such a way that you wanted to know what happens next. You'll learn about the connections to the Declaration of Independence, and multiple presidents, and how famous families merged through this small southern town. Don't just walk through and look at markers, go on the tour, it's fascinating!

Melon Bluff Nature & Heritage Reserve

Reviewed By MariefromGeorgia - Ludowici Georgia

This place is also in the same area as Ft. Morris and Listed on "The Liberty Trail" We had packed our car to spend the day exploring so we had lots of bottled water, snack crackers, canned weenies, trail bars, and PB & jelly sandwiches. We parked and paid a small fee. Started at the pointed arrows and then just kept walking into the woods. So many trails went left, right, straight and we walked around for hours seeing deer, birds, raccoons, lots of holy trees from wood pecker activity, information boards that tell that fire is beneficial to the land. We saw some people on horseback and we walked and watched until my feet got sore about 3 hours and we returned to our car to eat a snack.

Built after the Civil War to educate former slaves, this school is now also a museum.

Reviewed By zablob - Mableton, Georgia

Dorchester Academy is probably a very strange place to have a wedding reception, but it's history is extremely important to our family. My grandmother, mother-in-law, an aunt and uncle all attended this great school back in the 1920's and 30's.
Arrangements for public meetings or events can be coordinated thru the site representative. The site was used by Dr. Martin L. King as a retreat to for strategy and non-violent training sessions.

Tours of the facilities can be coordinated by visitng the Academy's web site.

Seabrook Village

A unique, African-American living history museum.

Reviewed By Anne C - Ottawa

We drove right by the entrance the first time, so turned back as instructed by our GPS. The signs were quite visible approaching from this way, however, the untravelled-looking driveway took us into the yard of a very old house badly in need of repair (as were all of the houses along this stretch). Much further ahead (through the trees) but with no sign to continue, there was a building far back but we didn't want to venture on private property so went back to the main highway and visited the COLONIAL MIDWAY MUSEUM instead (which we had passed on our way from Savannah). The guide there indicated that yes, apparently there was a Seabrook Village made up of a lot of old houses which were part of a (long) walking tour - she didn't have personal knowledge of it.

Anyway, our tour of the COLONIAL MIDWAY MUSEUM was FANTASTIC & highly recommended - extremely well maintained historically furnished period house, separate kitchen building, with neighbouring church and cementary. Our guide was wonderfully knowledgeable and friendly. Note: if it says it is open but the door isn't answered immediately, just wait a bit & keep knocking because the guide may be taking others around.
