One of the projects we are working on now is preserving and repairing the historic buildings in Pioneer Farm. Pioneer Farm was established in the 1970s to show what a one-man yeoman's farm would look like in the late 1800s. The land was donated by Mrs. Aldyne Johnson Maltbie. Many buildings were raised and brought to the area so they would not perish. On the farm is a 130+ log cabin that was donated by the McClendon Family and the children of Henderson Justice. Many log barns, an old jailhouse, a syrup kettle, a cane mill, and an operating grist mill. Sadly the many years of weather have washed dirt high under the buildings and have caused the 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. If you want to volunteer or need more information, email: info @andersonvillegeorgia.info. If you want to donate and help us save history please click the button below.

The Andersonville Guild is a 501(c)3 non-profit that was formed in 1973 to restore the town to a Civil War Village and replace buildings that have either been razed or burned down in the years past, and 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.
