The Willie Hawkins Building came from Avon Farm and was made from tobacco barn logs circa 1890. It houses many of the Village’s small farm artifacts, such as cotton, bean and corn planters, as well as fertilizer spreaders. The building has numerous plows, hand tools, and the prize, a forty saw cotton gin dating back to 1856.
The Willie Hawkins Annex reflects the Village’s household artifacts, featuring a series of washing machines, the oldest being a large cast iron pot and a wooden washboard. The Annex also contains other kitchen appliances from a Home Comfort Stove to an icebox refrigerator.
