Historic Westville is currently closed to the public as it undergoes a move to Columbus, GA and re-interpretation. The new Westville will embody the history of 19th century South, a very pivotal and turbulent period in American history. Westward expansion and the forced removal of Native Americans to lands west of the Mississippi River enabled the subsequent explosion of the cotton industry in the South.  Georgia and the surrounding region entered into an era defined by growth, economic prosperity, strong social tensions, slavery, and then civil war and subsequent changes to our culture and economy. Westville will introduce visitors to the diverse group of people who settled in the Chattahoochee River Valley during this time and explore their ideas, customs, and ways of living. Our buildings and artifacts will help the visitor see forward and backward in time and gain a new understanding of the forces and peoples that shaped the South and formed the basis of who we are today.
