Land and People

The Heritage Sandy Springs Museum is the only museum in the city dedicated to sharing the story and history of our community. This anchor exhibit, located in the center gallery, gives visitors the most general overview of Sandy Springs community history. As the most comprehensive exhibit gallery, “Sandy Springs: Land and People” tells the changing story of our community as the home of Native Americans, rural farmers, and modern suburbanites. Interpretive panels depict key transitions in Sandy Springs history, including the Land Rush, Civil War and Reconstruction, the impact of World War II, the area’s growth in the late twentieth century, and the struggle to become a city. This exhibit is made possible by the generosity of the Sandy Springs Society and was recently updated with new collection material in 2018.


Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Tours offered daily for both kids and adults.


The Museum is located at 6075 Sandy Springs Circle, Sandy Springs, GA 30328. Parking is available on Sandy Springs Place in designated parking lots.
