Expedition Bigfoot Should Be On Your List Of Places To See


Expedition Bigfoot is a museum in Georgia dedicated to our favorite hairy hominid, bigfoot. Check out this feature article on the museum, and photos of some of the awesome things they have there. If you're going to be in Georgia, you should definitely stop by.

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. "My wife and I love museums, and we noticed that there just weren't that many things for people to do when they come up here," David says. "So we thought, let's open up our own museum. We really just wanted to make a place where families could bring their kids to have fun, use their imaginations, maybe learn something about the environment, and learn about one of the greatest legends of all time."

David says everyone from college students from nearby Young Harris to traveling couples to parents dragged there by their kids show up every day.

As a young boy growing up in Michigan, David's Bigfoot fascination was sparked when he and his brother watched the 1972 documentary-style horror film The Legend of Boggy Creek. In the film, residents of Fouke, Arkansas, have an ape-like monster living among them. The story was unlike anything David had ever encountered, and he's been hooked ever since. Over the years he's worked as a Bigfoot researcher in both Florida and Georgia.

"It affected my brother and I very deeply," David says. "It was those words at the beginning that really got us: 'This is a true story.' Back in those days, when they said a story was based on true events, it was pretty much true."

Expedition Bigfoot opened in February. As a roadside attraction, the museum has no shortage of Bigfoot ephemera to show off, including a cast of a footprint made near Elkins Creek in Pike County, Georgia — considered by self-proclaimed Bigfoot experts to be an important piece of evidence due to its alleged dermal ridges.
