New North Georgia Museum Explores Legend of ‘Bigfoot’

The creature goes by many names in the Southeastern United States: Wood Booger, Skunk Ape, Sasquatch. But most people simply know it as Bigfoot. The large and elusive forest-dwelling creature has been spotted roaming remote locations from the Himalayas to Peachtree City, leaving behind only massive footprints.

The name is steeped in mythology and hoaxes that have played out in B movies, and tales of harrowing encounters. The scientific community has confirmed no physical evidence proving Bigfoot’s existence, but the mystery lives on as eyewitness accounts are reported every year.

On a stretch of Highway 515 in Cherry Log, Georgia, David Bakara and his wife Malinda have built a monument to this great unsolved mystery with a museum they’ve christened Expedition Bigfoot. The 4,000-square-foot former bar is now a repository dedicated to the legend of the Sasquatch. It’s filled with exhibits, videos of eyewitness testimonials, listening stations, artwork, plaster casts of footprints, and more. There’s even a giant replica of the beast named Raven lurking in one the museums’ main show rooms.

Expedition Bigfoot showcases humankind’s fascination with the shifty beast.
