Pictures are perhaps the most evocative of records.  For that reason they are listed first.  These pictures were recovered from cardboard storage boxes, well-cared-for albums and dusty desk drawers from all over the South.  More come in as people discover there is an effort underway to preserve a part of Old Muscogeeís history.  To view the old photos, click on the link below.

Others would argue that stories, well told, exceed photographs in conveying a feeling of being some place in space and time.  You can judge for yourself by clicking on the link below.

Stories


 

Here is your link to the families that made up Muscogee.  If you have a family or two from Muscogee, send in your stories and photos.

No history of Muscogee would be complete without including the Southern States Lumber Company.  The lumber company was Muscogeeís raison d'Ítre.  Here you will find additional pictures along with a history of the lumber company.

And finally, thereís the Old Muscogee Cemetery.  Itís all thatís left.  Here I have included a list of known graves and a history of those buried there where such a history is available.
