Step Back in Time

Visit Historic Andersonville Georgia

We would like to invite you to visit the Civil War Village of Andersonville and Andersonville National Historic Site as part of your education on 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 More information. Call 229-924-2558

In the Civil War Village of Andersonville, your group can wander through our 7-acre Pioneer Farm, which depicts life on a one-man farm of the mid-1800s.  You can view an authentic log cabin, log barns, and 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 and enjoy a small town with a big history.  We are open and ready to greet tour groups 360 days a year.  The Welcome Center and Museum are closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, Easter, and Fourth of July.
