Mission and History
The Cotton MuseumThis museum is more than a collection of artifacts. It outlines the history of cotton and includes the slave issues and how their participation in the production of cotton contributed to the economy.

“Cotton and burlap are the fabrics that bind the past with the future in this area. The past holds memories that will last – both good and bad. Those memories help to mold the future and remind us to strive to do better – for each other as well as our farms and industries.”

A few dedicated citizens in Dooly County realized the importance that cotton has played in the lives of not only Dooly County people, but people from around the world. Their enthusiasm has been rewarded by the construction of the Cotton Museum. Local farmers and interested citizens have contributed many of the artifacts that are contained in the museum.
However, the museum is more than a collection of artifacts. It outlines the history of cotton and includes the slave issues and how their participation in the production of cotton contributed to the economy. It shows how farmers dealt with planting, controlled the insects, prayed for rain and sunshine, and waited for the white fluff to appear at harvest time. How the farmers sold their cotton and how slaves were bought and sold. The tools that plowed, planted and harvested the cotton are on display as well as the weighing machinery and a planters desk where accurate records of the harvest were kept.

We invite you to ride through Dooly County in the fall of the year and take in the beauty of “snow in the south”. The cotton is so thick and so white that it appears to be snow on the ground with bright green trees framing the view. This unusual sight can only be seen in the south and best in Dooly County. The weather here is perfect for growing the finest cotton in the world.

Cotton has been part of Dooly County history for several centuries and stands to remain a major part of our culture. Open Monday through Friday, the museum is located just a quarter of a mile from Exit 109 on Interstate 75. Call us at 229-268-2045 for information about hours, directions, and group tours. We also invite you to stay in the area and soak up the atmosphere that is naturally created by local society.
