At the Global Village & Discovery Center, you can learn how Habitat for Humanity International works in partnership with families to build strength, stability and self-reliance.

The 6-acre village is a unique way to see life-size Habitat houses from countries around the world without leaving beautiful Southwest Georgia and is a popular destination for school field trips, scouts, youth groups, senior group travelers and tour planners.

The Global Village & Discovery Center is a valued addition to the rich cultural and historical attractions of the area and destination on the SAM Shortline Excursion Train route, which also includes President Jimmy Carter’s home and museum in Plains and his boyhood farm in Archery, among other historic sites.
