The Museum

The White County History Museum is located in the old courthouse on the Cleveland square and is home to White County Historical Society. The building was completed by a local contractor using local labor and handmade bricks beginning in in 1859. It was utilized by the White County government until 1964 when a new, modern courthouse was completed just south of the square.
The museum houses artifacts that depict life in the north Georgia mountains for the past 150 years, a large collection of genealogical records, and newspapers from the late 1800's to present. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The museum is open from 10:00am to 3:00pm, Thursday through Saturday and admission is free. Parking is available on the square, but please be careful when crossing the busy road that surrounds the building.
