Cabin used in movie Get Low with Robert Duvall

This is the cabin that was used in the forthcoming movie Get Low, with Robert Duvall. (See my posting of May 2, 2010, below.)

It’s in the Pickett’s Mill Battlefield (Civil War) Historic Site, near Marietta, Georgia. It was built nearby in the 1850s and moved to the site. It’s now used for demonstrations of candle making, cooking, sewing, etc.

  1. The wife and I visited the cabin, after reading your post (and seeing the movie). We took lots of photos; the funny thing is, the park rangers had no idea a movie had been filmed there in 2009, nor that the likes of Robert Duvall, Bill Murray or Sissy Spacek had been so close by!

  2. I just came across this and wanted to clarify for Ghostsoldier. I am friends with the daughter of the man who was the Park Ranger of PMHS. Their family lived on the site at the time the movie was filmed. Her father found a new job and they moved about a year or so after the filming was finished. Another family now lives there (and now takes care of the park). That could be why they didn't know.
