More About Eagle Tavern Museum
Possibly a fort to shelter early settlers from Creek Indian attacks in the 17oos, The Eagle Tavern was built as an inn on a stagecoach route in the 18o0s. The tavern became state property in 1956 and has authentic furniture and decor from the 1800s. Tours of the museum are free and available through the Oconee County Welcome Center, helping curious visitors experience the feeling of 1800s stagecoach life.
