Georgia Archives Month 2022: Welcome

Georgia Archives Month is an opportunity to recognize Georgia’s rich history and to highlight the many ways historical records enrich our lives. Join us as we celebrate Special Collections at Georgia Southern University Libraries as a caretaker of history

Where to play

Games are held at the Bland Family cottage at the GS Botanic Garden. The Garden is located a few blocks from the main campus at 1503 Bland Avenue.

What is Bland’s Botanical Bequest?

Bland's Botanical Bequest is a fun, fast-paced immersive game where players must work together as they dig through historical mysteries on their quest to 'escape' the Bland cottage...

Do you think you can solve the final puzzle before it’s too late?

The game and materials are based on archival materials housed right here at Zach S. Henderson Library Special Collections. Join us this year at the GS Botanic Garden's Bland Family Cottage as we celebrate Georgia Archives Month and the value of Special Collections as a caretaker of historical records!
