Okefenokee Heritage Center
There's more to explore outside. The Waycross depot has been relocated and has a few exhibits. Visitors may walk through the mail car, passenger car, and caboose of a 1800s train. Old printing presses are housed in the Journal Herald Building. An 1815 dog trot house has looms and spinning wheels on display.
The main museum is accessible. A paved path and ramp provide access to the train depot. The mail car is accessible with assistance to get over the gap and high threshold between the depot and the car. The aisles in the other cars are too narrow for wheelchair access. A hard packed dirt path goes to the Journal Herald Building and the dog trot house. The dog trot house is not accessible as it does not have a ramp. Center 31.2352, -82.38242
