The T.R.R. Cobb House looks at different ways to present our 19th century Southern History. Whether through changing exhibits, display cases, or period furnishings, the Museum seeks to tell the story of what is was like to live in the mid-19th century in Georgia for T.R.R. Cobb and those around him. In doing so we seek out the most up to date, credible research to support that story and present it as part of our shared history.
The T.R.R. Cobb House is divided into two basic exhibition spaces. The Main Floor is set up as it might have looked during the period of 1852-1862 and is furnished with original pieces from the Cobb and related families, as well as other Athens families. The Upper Floor is of a more contemporary nature, with changing exhibits and display cases housing original weapons, objects, documents, and ephemera on particular topics. From Cobb’s Legion artifacts to copies of speeches by T.R.R. or Howell, these exhibits will attempt to tell another part of the story.
