Visit Historic Andersonville Georgia

Step Back in Time

We would like to invite you to visit the Civil War Village of Andersonville and Andersonville National Historic Site as part of your education of American History.  

During 1864-1865 the infamous Andersonville Confederate Prison was located here where 45,000 Union soldiers were held captive and almost 13,000 died in the 14 months of the prison’s occupancy.

A professional step-on tour guide can be provided for motor coach groups of 15 or more. This tour includes Andersonville Historic Site and the Drummer Boy Civil War Museum.  Please contact the Welcome Center for information on pricing and scheduling. Call 229-924-2558

In the Civil War Village of Andersonville, your group will be able to wander through our 7-acre Pioneer Farm, which depicts life on a one-man farm of the mid-1800s.  You will be able to view an authentic log cabin, log barns, an operating grist mill and experience the peacefulness of small town life here in Andersonville (pop 331).  Our Blacksmith shop is located in Pioneer Farm. The Blacksmith is available by prior arrangement if his schedule permits.

We welcome all groups to come and step back in time  throughout the year.  We are open and ready to greet tour groups 360 days a year.  The Welcome Center and Museum are closed, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Easter and Fourth of July.
