Researching in Troup County, Georgia

Legacy Museum and Troup County Archives
LaGrange, Georgia



This week I made my 2nd visit to the Troup County Archives. I arrived before the library opened so spent a few minutes looking through the museum on the 1st floor. Since it was just a few days after Veterans Day their exhibit honoring Troup County veterans was still on display. It was quite an accumulation of photos, uniforms and other memorabilia covering most of the 1st floor space.  The photos below are just a part of the exhibit.




The research library is on the 2nd floor of the building. You couldn't ask for a more helpful and knowledgeable staff. If you have Troup County ancestors but can't visit LaGrange, check out the Troup County Archives website. They have searchable cemetery records, marriage records and deeds among other things. Images are even included for the marriage records and deeds.
