History

Andersonville was "POW camp" to the world but it is "small town" for Georgians who knew very well. As you heard the story about Andersonville POW prison and Andersonville National Historic Site including years, there was a small town next to that site as known as Civil War village. Andersonville was founded after they set the place for union POWs who brought by the train. They had to create hotel, post office, restaurant, and other places for visitors, Confederate soldiers, and prison staff. Now they have a small museum to display how the town founded and became involved with the site of Andersonville.
