Civil War Sesquicentennial Exhibit

Brown House Museum

268 North Harris Street
Sandersville, GA 31082



During the Civil War Sesquicentennial, the Brown House Museum will offer a rotating exhibit like none offered before. Civil War artifacts, memorabilia, personal letters written from soldiers to their loved ones and historic war papers from Washington County families will be on display. Uniforms, trunks, weapons and other Civil War items can be seen.

See history unfold in the house where it is said General Sherman rested, dined with the family, napped and set up his headquarters when he came to Sandersville on the March to the Sea. The lounge where he slept remains in the museum.

The Brown House Museum also features period furniture and prominent collections of the past and present life of Washington County and its residents. Plan to visit during the sesquicentennial and experience the Southern way of life.
