Sheep graze in the grass. Sweat drips down the brows of men working the turpentine still as its steam rises. A great black steam engine sits at the train depot. A horse and buggy rattles as it travels over the fields. At the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village, visitors step back in time to a 19th-century village and farm. On the grounds, visitors can see a variety of areas including a traditional farm community, a progressive farmstead, an industrial-sites complex, and a rural town, all spread over 95 acres. The Victorian home of Tifton's founder Captain H. H. Tift stands in testament to the finer side of the past with ornate silk wallpaper, heart-pine floors, and Victorian paintings. Throughout the park, patrons can ride in a horse-drawn wagon or talk to a farm laborer as he tends the fields, while farm animals and costumed interpreters complete the backdrop of this vast park.
