The Fort Yargo Living History Society is a non-profit corporation dedicated to preserving the historically significant remains of the Humphries brothers trading post at Fort Yargo, near the present day city of Winder, Ga. It is our fervent hope that we might be able to return the structure to the way it would have been constructed and furnished in the period of its birth, the 1790s. This will be done as much as possible by using period tools and methods, using modern methods and materials only where required for safety or the longevity of the structure.

We hope to use this facility as an educational living history demonstration site, where public schools and school groups can experience a glimpse of what life on the frontier may have been like. Demonstrations will be provided by volunteers who have studied the period in Georgia's history and provide as accurate an impression of the time as is possible. Open the 2nd Saturday of the Month, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
