Moreland Hometown Heritage Museum

Located in historic Moreland Mill, Moreland Hometown Heritage Museum features memorabilia and personal items of two of the South's most renowned writers: Erskine Caldwell and Lewis Grizzard. Caldwell was born in Moreland and became one of America's most widely read and critically acclaimed writers with a literary output of more than 60 titles. Two of his most popular books, God's Little Acre and Tobacco Road, were turned into movies by Hollywood. Grizzard, who spent his childhood in Moreland, eventually became almost inseparable from Moreland in his life and his stories. He is one of the most popular and best-known Southern humorists. The museum houses Grizzard's personal effects from his youth, as well as professional memorabilia, such as his typewriter.

Moreland is a far cry from “Anywhere, USA.” Instead, it embodies small-town charm and boasts a unique mix of old and new. And when you visit, keep an eye out for the flags boasting a bluebird, the town’s chosen mascot.
