“Researching this time period was a fascinating journey,” Executive Director Nancy Glaser said in a press release. “Reading the letters, diaries and newspaper accounts was an opportunity to visit another time and also feel the foreboding of a way of life for many that was coming to an end.”

The museum at 560 Reynolds St. is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $4 for adults, $3 for seniors and $2 for ages 6-18. For more details, call (706) 722-8454 or visit augustamuseum.org.
