Georgia Writers Museum

  Every story starts somewhere...

Our History

In 2011.  concerned business owners and citizens of Eatonton and Putnam County, Georgia, gathered to brainstorm ways to showcase the county's assets and drive economic growth. Lake Country Arts, a tax-exempt organization, was formed in 2013 to create arts-related venues and attractions to enhance the economy and quality of life in Georgia's Lake Country. 

The Georgia Writers Museum, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is  the first initiative created by Lake Country Arts.  Its goal is to create a center for literary arts in Georgia's Historic Heartland.

The Museum opened in a temporary location at 109 South Jefferson Avenue in downtown Eatonton in April, 2014, with plans to relocate to a historic building on the courthouse square once funds are raised for renovations.
