Laurel and Hardy Museum, Hollywood History in Harlem Georgia

Laurel and Hardy Muesum

A friend and I were headed back home on I-20 in south Georgia and we happened across the Laurel and Hardy Museum in Harlem.  Oliver Hardy was born in Harlem in 1892 and the town is proud of its native son.  

Stan and Ollie

The Museum pays tribute to the comedy duo of the 1920’s and 1930’s. Staffed by volunteers who are fans of the comedy team’s films, the small museum features unique pieces of Hollywood by gone days.  Stan and Ollie made only 107 films during their careers, but the fan base is strong.  In fact, each October fans descend upon Harlem for a film festival that swell the small town’s population upwards of forty thousand. 

Cinema at Museum

This is well worth a detour of the main road to visit to this piece of Hollywood history.  Be sure to check at the new movie about the two titans of comedy.  https://www.crescenttheater.com/2018/stan-ollie/

Roadrunner Journeys was created as an outlet for my photography and travel writing. My passion is travel and sharing my stories by documenting my travel memories, one photograph at a time. While usually a solo traveler, my trips are well planned adventures that provide for maximum fulfillment and affordability both internationally and domestically. My blog features adventures from points around the US, Canada and Europe as well as long weekend road trips, especially if one features cheesecake. A well thought out tour of the northern Florida locations of the Cheesecake Factory may bring some gastronomic excess but it was well worth the adventure of traveling the back roads of the state. The Alabama Gulf Coast is my home which provides me with access to beautiful sunsets, seafood and inspiration.
