History Is Alive At Georgia's Agrirama

Costumed interpreters provide the personal touch when it comes to demonstrating how our forefathers and mothers lived off the land.

Soap making – as it was done in the 19th century – is part of the activities at the Agrirama. An interpreter stirs a batch of lye soap in the backyard. When the cooking is finished the mixture is poured into trays, and the soap is allowed to set before being cut into bars.
