This museum is a gem among gems. We got a tour with Jimmy White. What a great way to learn about African American history through a rich and storied local lens. This family-run museum is doing the important work of preservation and education. Visits are currently by appointment only through their website, but hopefully the museum will expand their hours and activities as we move through the pandemic. A must-visit!

I embrace and am grateful for the mission of the Jim-Ree African American Museum and look forward to learning more through our connection. Perhaps even more importantly, I appreciate and admire the passion and joy with which they pursue sharing that mission with all.

Jim-Ree Museum began with an annual Black History Month exhibit during February. We now program year round, including our rotating and permanent exhibits, Juneteenth Festival, Virtual 5K Run, Kwanzaa Celebration, and more. All are welcome to visit our recently renovated home in the Historic Elbert County Jail. Our historians and storytellers are available by appointment for individual and group tours, consultations, workshops and presentations.
