I grew up in Georgia and I am well aware of the historic places to be found on the coast, but this place took me by surprise! Nice place to visit to put our great state into perspective.

We enjoyed the beautiful Midway History Museum and the historic cemetary across the street. The historic Congregational Church dates back to 1792. Our granddaughter was married on the steps of the museum. Hanging moss in the trees.

We stopped here on a whim as we traveled from Brunswick to Savannah. We had a very enjoyable and informative tour with an engaging docent. She shared many interesting stories and anecdotes and we left much better informed about local history than when we arrived! The historical artifacts are very impressive especially for a small museum in a small town.... More

A hidden gem. If you are a history fan, don't miss this opportunity to learn more about 3 signers of the Declaration of Independence...and much more. The tour guide was excellent, she loves her job!

Midway seems like a small, unassuming town, that you could pass through - or walk around in and think you pretty much know everything there is to know about it. Take the tour! Seriously! Kitty is so knowledgeable about the history and people of Midway that you'll discover more than you thought possible. She made the tour interesting and spun... More

After passing this place several times while visiting our daughter who recently moved to Midway, GA we decided to stop and check it out. What a marvelous surprise as we began to step back in time to colonial life and times. This magic was performed by our guide who brought the early history of Georgia to life with her stories....

We had a guided tour of the Cemetery and the Museum with the head of the Museum, Diane. She was very knowledgeable and was an excellent storyteller. She made the lives of these long dead people come alive. If you are interested in early American history don't miss this Cemetery and Museum. We also got to visit the old church... More
