Originally located on the edge of long-ago plantations, like a tiny ruin on the outpost of an old empire of legends and epics, this ancient frontier store has been recovered and moved to the site of the "Globe Tavern and Inn Stagecoach Stop" in Fort Gaines, and endorsed by museum curators as "one of a kind in America." It is a living museum with its petticoat counters, wooden cash registers, antique post office, gristmill, more than 4,000 artifacts, and 3-D documents of frontier life, all authentic and original. You will see and touch beauty bestowed by time, by adversity and centuries of human feelings. There are certain hidden country places where time lies as lightly upon the landscape as a leaf falling upon its own shadow. You will find an oasis of enjoyment and sentiment when you revisit those long ago golden moments of Mister Sutton's Corner. Shown by appointment.
