The Georgia Writers Museum promotes the rich, literary heritage of the state. Of the 63 authors in the Georgia Writers Hall of Fame, nine are from within 30 miles of Putnam County.    Our mission is to promote tourism and literary heritage by providing a venue to showcase the lives, accomplishments and works of local authors.

Permanent exhibits honor the three most famous local authors, Alice Walker, Flannery O’Connor and Joel Chandler Harris. Works and artifacts of other authors are featured on a rotation basis.

The Downtown Eatonton Mural Project

The Georgia Writers Museum will be the lead agency for a consortium of organizations on the first three murals in a multi-phase mural project that is part of a larger initiative to establish public art aimed at creating a vibrant historic district to stimulate economic development.
