On the second floor of the Museum we have created a Resource Room of non-circulating secondary sources to which we are constantly adding additional titles. These resources are available to those visitors interested in conducting their own research concerning the Civil War era in Georgia, Southern Decorative Arts, and Victorian Architecture and Culture. Whether political, military, or domestic, the Resource Room concentrates on the actions that led to the war, on the factors that help explain it and its aftermath, and on the people who suffered through it. The TRR Cobb House provides an ideal setting to shed new light on the war – not merely on the political and military aspects, but also on the more subtle social, cultural, economic, and human implications of this pivotal period in United States history. Numerous Civil War resources are added annually. If you are looking for information on a Civil War ancestor, research assistance in restoring your Victorian home, or trying to identify that old piece of furniture then check out the TRR Cobb House Resource Room first.
A searchable catalog of some of our resource holdings is available on LibraryThing. Click the "Search" tab at the top of the page and enter "TRRCobbHouse" in the "members and locations" field. Click on the result "TRRCobbHouse," which will take you to our catalog of resources.
Note: The Resource Room is open to researchers by appointment so you will need to call ahead.
