Historic Westville

Curator


Historic Westville seeks an experienced full-time curator to research and create multiple story-focused interpretive exhibits in anticipation of our grand re-opening at our new Columbus, Georgia location. The Curator will work closely with the Director of Education and the Collections Manager to create a dynamic museum that interprets the richly diverse history and experiences of peoples living in the South.

Historic Westville, Inc. is a living history museum taking a modern look at the past. Using modern museum methods with a hands-on twist, Westville challenges the familiar through the exploration of various perspectives, including Native, European, and African Americans. Westville exhibits the diverse experiences of southern peoples by demonstrating how their lives were linked but their experiences differed due to race, class, and gender. By exploring these complex historic truths, we actively explore how our own modern perspectives influence how we understand the past.
