Long Description:
From The Putnam County Chamber of Commerce:
"The Uncle Remus Museum is located in Turner Park, three blocks south of the courthouse on Highway 441 in downtown Eatonton. Turner Park was part of the original homestead of Joseph Sidney Turner, the “Little Boy” in the tales of Uncle Remus. The museum consists of a log cabin made from three slave cabins originating in Putnam County. The cabins are similar to the one occupied by Uncle Remus, the character made famous in the folklore tales of Joel Chandler Harris. The stories of Uncle Remus are captured in shadow boxes containing delicate woodcarvings of “de critters” humanized by the author. The shadow boxes illustrate twelve of Harris’ best known stories. The museum also features painted murals that authentically depict the years surrounding the Civil War during which the Uncle Remus stories are set. A focal point of the museum is the two pictures from the movie “Song of the South” donated by Walt Disney when the museum opened in 1963."
