Richmond Hill History Museum

In the town of Richmond Hill, not far from Olympus Carrington, sits the Richmond Hill History Museum. If you participate in the Coastal Brian Heritage Trail, this museum is stop number 11 on the tour. You'll get to see the Richmond Hill Kindergarten and the old Bailey Carpenter Barber Shop. Both of these exhibits are a rich part of the history of this Georgia town. These structures were around in the 1940s, and were both purchased by the famous Henry Ford! In case you don't know who he was, Henry Ford invented the widely used assembly line technique of mass production. It's definitely one of the coolest and most history-rich places in Georgia.
