Farming Georgia in the Early Twentieth Century

This farm near Canton, Georgia, reflects Americans' dominant image of rural landscapes as bucolic and relatively unchanging. The research carried out by teachers on KCAC's Cultivating Homelands team has reaffirmed the values behind such icons while also highlighting dynamic, complex, and productive dimensions of Georgia's rural heritage.
