African American Alliance Heritage Museum

The African American Heritage Museum & Research Center provides a repository for African-American artifacts and records while also serving as a genealogy workroom for African-American research. Adjacent to the museum, which is housed in a restored shotgun-style house, is the Farmer Street Cemetery which may be the largest slave cemetery in the South. Extensive research by a commission (appointed by the mayor and city council of Newnan) has shown that this cemetery was a 19th and 20th century burial ground for African-Americans in Coweta County.

We are open Wednesday 10am-4pm & other days by appointment.
