Location:216 East Robert Toombs Avenue in Washington, GA.
Facilities:Museum, gift shop, picnic area.
Special Features:Robert Toombs was a successful planter and lawyer who served as state legislator, US Congressman, and Senator. "Defend yourselves; the enemy is at your door!" thundered Toombs from the Senate floor on January 24, 1860. The following year, Georgia seceded from the Union and, for many, Toombs personified the South's fervent secessionist movement. In 1870, as the Reconstruction Era drew to a close, Toombs felt that Georgia should live under a constitution of its own making. His last service to Georgia citizens was to help create the Constitution of 1877, which was not amended until 1945.
