The Andersonville Guild is a 501(c)3 non-profit that was formed in 1973 with the objective of restoring the town to a Civil War Village and to replace buildings that have either been razed or burned down in the years past, and to save nearby buildings from oblivion. For this reason, structures that were in peril have and are moved to Andersonville and restored.
Today, the Andersonville Guild promotes economic development through tourism in Andersonville and historic preservation through renovations of historic buildings in Andersonville and the preservation projects at the Drummer Boy Museum.
The Andersonville Guild raises funds for these projects through tours, building rentals, memberships, raffles, grants and the Andersonville Historic Fair, which is always the first full weekend in October.

One of the projects that we are working on at this time is the preservation and repair of the historic buildings in Pioneer Farm. Pioneer Farm was established in the 1970's to show how a one man yeoman's farm would look like in the late 1800's. The land was donated by Mrs. Aldyne Johnson Maltbie. Many buildings were raised and brought to the area so they would not perish. In the farm is a 130+ log cabin that was donated by the McClendon Family and the children of Henderson Justice. Many log barns, the old jail house, syrup kettle, cane mill and an operating grist mill. Sadly the many years of weather has washed dirt high under the buildings and has caused decay of the foundations.
The Andersonville Guild will need to raise $50,000.00 to be able to raise these buildings and repair what has been damaged.
