This memorial to Joel Chandler Harris, born in Eatonton Dec. 9, 1848, was constructed from three slave cabins found in Putnam County. Uncle Remus Museum, Inc., a local non-profit organization of dedicated citizens established and has maintained its operation continuously from the opening on April 21, 1963.

Turner Park is a part of the home place of Joseph Sydney Turner, the "little boy" to whom the world famous stories of the "critters" were told by "Uncle Remus," Harris' unique creation. Turner grew up at "Turnwold," nine miles east of Eatonton, home of his father, Joseph Addison turner, where Harris had his first job assisting in printing The Countryman.
