Fodor's Review

Located 4 mi southeast of Helen, this museum showcases a 200-year unbroken tradition of folk pottery in Northeast Georgia (especially in nearby Mossy Creek and the Gillsville-Lula area). Part of the 5,000-square-foot facility outlines how pottery is made and how it was used for essential household purposes. Exhibits showcase a 200-piece collection donated to the museum, including the whimsical face jugs that have become an emblem of Southern folk art. Demonstrations of

pottery making are offered one Saturday a month. Call ahead for dates and times.
