“NON SIBI SED ALIIS” – General James E. Oglethorpe, 1733, founder of Georgia -“Not for ourselves, but for others.”

Beginning with Native American history and Spanish exploration of the coast, the Georgia Pioneer Gallery focuses on General Oglethorpe’s creation of the Colony of Georgia and the enlightenment ideals which were so instrumental in its inception. The gallery contains documents and historical artifacts from the native Indian, Spanish, British colonial and American Revolutionary periods that compliment and add dimension to the history exhibit panels.
