Come experience the "gourd life" as you tour our free international gourd museum, retail shops and nature trail around the lake. Gourds of all shapes and sizes are made into anything you can imagine! Buildings are handicapped accessible. Located five miles from Helen.

Patented Gourd Impressions pottery was developed here using gourds as molds. Both the pottery and most of the gourd items are made on site. Fun and unique items such as a gourd cash register and gourd sailboats on the lake are visitor favorites, as are the gourdhead masks.

PLEASE NOTE that we are open by appointment only Dec. 24-March 31. Open daily the rest of the year except Easter and Thanksgiving.
