Uncle Remus Museum
Joel Chandler Harris, creator of Uncle Remus, was born in Eatonton in 1848. This small museum, located in an old slave cabin, averages 12,000 visitors a year. To appreciate the museum, it's best to have already read the once beloved book -- which is not easy, it being politically incorrect and out-of-print and all. Joel Chandler Harris's books and other souvenirs can be purchased at the museum.
There's a small statue of Br'er Rabbit out front.
