Take a Virtual Tour of Historic Westville Colonel John West, concerned about the loss of traditional crafts and skills began, in 1928, to collect historic buildings and bring them together at his home place in Jonesboro, Georgia. It was there that he created the "Fair of 1850", a display of historic buildings and period craft demonstrations. Following his death in 1961, his collection was purchased and moved to Lumpkin, Georgia on 59 acres of land just south of town. What began with a core of six buildings has grown into over 30 on 83 acres of land. We invite you to take a virtual tour of Historic Westville!

Castle Architecture Although castle architecture developed over the centuries in line with weapons technology, the principles remained much the same. A good castle provided a secure base that could be easily defended. It needed defenses against frontal attack (thick, high walls and secure entry gates) and from undermining (rock foundations or a moat). It furnished means of repelling attackers while minimising exposure of the defenders (arrow loops, crenellation, machicolations, murder holes). Further, it needed facilities to withstand a siege - a fresh water supply or large cistern and vast supplies of food. A good castle had no dead-spaces - ie external areas that defenders could not fire on, but did provide multiple locations from which vulnerable points could be defended. The best castles provided rings of defence so that defenders could hold out from a citadel even if the outer defences failed. Castles also needed facilities for a garison and living quarters.
