Boone Named Director of Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village

Garrett Boone has been named the Director of the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College by ABAC Vice President for Finance and Operations Paul Willis.

Willis made the appointment on August 1. Boone has served as Assistant Director at the museum since 2012 and began work at the museum in 2011 as the Conference Facilities and Marketing Coordinator.

“During the last 4 years, Garrett has enthusiastically helped to advance the vision, mission, and values of the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village. In addition, he has established a proven track record of measurable growth and success,” Willis said. “I am confident that, under his direct leadership, the state’s museum of agriculture will continue moving forward.”

Boone attended the University of West Florida and then worked in the tourism and hospitality industry for more than 10 years.

​​”The enthusiastic team at the Museum serves as ambassadors to the past and we firmly believe the guests that walk through our doors today are the history makers of tomorrow,” said Boone. “It is an honor to serve a team that for 38 years has inspired an appreciation for the past by passing on Georgia’s rich, rural heritage.”
