Andrew College proudly announces the Georgia Museum of Agriculture & Historic Village traveling exhibit known as the Cotton Mill Children. This exhibit highlights the research of Joe Manning, who, in 2006, discovered a series of photographs of Tifton Cotton Mill workers while searching for information on the work of Lewis Hine. Manning embarked on a mission to discover the identities of the children and to learn about their lives and those of their families. This mobile exhibit features the story of the Young Family and provides an overview of child labor and the Tifton Cotton Mill.

Proposed Times for Exhibition to Open During the Week from September 21-October 13

Mondays 10am-1pm
Tuesdays 4pm – 6pm
Thursdays 1pm-4pm
Fridays by Appointment for Schools
