Andalusia Farm: Love the one you're with

Andalusia Farm: Love the one you're with

“Accepting oneself does not preclude an attempt to become better.”
Flannery O'Connor

As Andalusia enters organizational adolescence, it is a good time to take stock of whence we were born, where we have been, where we are, and where we are going. The Andalusia Foundation was established in 2001 and the property was opened to the public shortly thereafter. At 13 years old, our coming of age story, or bildungsroman as it is known in literary criticism, can be seen as a tale of vision and hard work and the support of so many individuals, foundations and government funders.

To help us in our rite of passage, we are fortunate to have been awarded a MAP grant. MAP is an acronym for Museum Assessment Program and is supported through a cooperative agreement between the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the American Alliance of Museums... Read More

Andalusia Farm: A Warm Welcome

Andalusia Farm: A Warm Welcome

“The things we see, hear, smell and touch affect us long before we believe anything at all.” ~Flannery O’Connor

I must have been about eight years old the first time I was made ‘aware’ of Flannery O’Connor. My stepfather would on occasion wear a T-shirt that bore the illustration of a rather peculiar looking woman holding a Bible, with a peacock’s plumage in full regalia unfurled behind her... Read More

Andalusia Blog: Backyard redux

 "From the beginning, relations between these birds and my mother were strained."- Flannery O'Connor

One of wonderful things about museum work is the idea of preservation. Preservation is like a thread that sews together past and future. Preservation can engage people in sentimental remembrance of things past (yes, like Proust and his Madeleine) but also introduces others to new things or activities that can still have relevance today but have been lost in a tide of time. For me, the exciting part of my work here at Andalusia is remembrance and discovery of life ways that were part and parcel of life on a Middle Georgia dairy farm during the late 1950s and early 1960s, the “period of significance” (that is preservation-speak for the time period we are focused on interpreting here)...

Georgia Military College partners with Columbus State University

Georgia Military College partners with Columbus State University

Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell IV, president of Georgia Military College (GMC), joined Dr. Timothy Mescon, president of Columbus State University (CSU), on February 21st to sign an articulation agreement that will allow GMC students to apply their associate degree credits toward CSU baccalaureate degrees.  GMC students will be able to transfer degree credits without losing credit hours, providing a more seamless transition to CSU.

“GMC is a liberal arts-based, two-year college. Although we serve 250 ROTC cadets (at the Milledgeville Campus), the vast majority of our students are typical community college students.  GMC has nine campuses throughout the state and serves about 12,000 students annually, many of whom go on to pursue baccalaureate degrees at four-year colleges and universities,” Lt. Gen. Caldwell noted. “CSU offers significant opportunities for our students to further their education.”
