During the Great Depression many families were struggling, including the Mattox Family. Come see the innovative ways they dealt with the hardships of the devastating time in U.S. history such as:making bird houses from squash and insulating the walls of the home with newspapers to help keep warm during the winter months. This home was built in 1879 in Bryan County, Georgia by former slaves, Andrew Mattox and Charlott Morel.

International Civil Rights Walk of Fame

The Civil Rights Walk of Fame was made to honor our brave warriors of justice during the Civil Rights Era. The warriors, who struggled and fought to show that everyone should be equal, should be remembered and honored. The Walk has been made possible by embedding the footprints of role models during the Civil Rights. Mahatma “Great Soul” Gandhi had the same idea as Martin Luther King Jr. They both shared the gift of nonviolence to others. The Gandhi statue is memorable because Mahatma gave his life, organized, and stimulated 400 million people for independence.
