Many of you may or may not know that, a little over two years ago, Stuckey’s purchased a family-operated pecan-processing and candy-making plant in Wrens, Georgia, marking the first time since 1964 that Stuckey’s is once again making its own candy.

What’s more, Stuckey’s moved its distribution warehouse from Eastman to Wrens earlier this year as part of a $5 million expansion project. This means that, nearly all of your favorite Stuckey’s road trip snacks like our iconic pecan log rolls, pecan pralines, pecan divinity, gophers and flavored pecans now all come out of Wrens.

Of course, Stuckey’s is no stranger to Wrens. As a matter of fact, less than a quarter of a mile down Main Street from the Stuckey’s candy plant is a building with a familiar sloped roof. And though that roof is no longer the well-known teal color that we all looked for on family vacations and road trips of our youth, it was once a Stuckey’s operated by Stephanie Stuckey’s aunt and uncle. Today it serves as a restaurant.

Still, that too is part of the comeback story of Stuckey’s because, along with once again making their famous pecan log rolls and other road trip treats, you can also buy them and other Stuckey’s related merchandise once again in Wrens at the Stuckey’s candy plant retail store.

So, the next time you’re road tripping near Wrens stop in and say hello over a pecan log roll (and be sure to check out our recent Big Boy acquisition while you’re there!).

Once you’ve stocked up on all of your favorite Stuckey’s pecan treats and souvenirs for the folks back home, be sure to check out these things to see and do near the Stuckey’s candy plant while you’re in the area:

Harlem Museum & Welcome Center / Harlem, GA

The Harlem Museum and Welcome Center not only presents visitors with interesting exhibits on the colorful history of the city, it’s also home to the Laurel and Hardy Museum. This museum within a museum tells extraordinary story of Oliver Hardy, born in Harlem on January 18, 1892, and his British sidekick, Stan Laurel – both of whom are better known as the comedy duo Laurel and Hardy.

The museum’s Cinema Room features seasonal showings of some of the pair’s best films including The Lucky Dog, Scram!, and Babes in Toyland along with a biopic about Oliver Hardy. There’s even an episode of the popular mid-century television show This is Your Life featuring comedic pair.

Of course, there are also plenty of photo ops with the two including Stan and Ollie riding in a Model T and a face cut out display where you and a friend can blame each other for another fine mess you’ve gotten yourselves into.

There’s also an interactive world map called “Where in the World Were Laurel and Hardy” that highlights different places around the world that the pair visited or played an important role in their history.

The museum also puts on an annual Oliver Hardy Festival on the first Saturday of October. This year the event falls on Saturday, October 7, 2023 with entertainment still to be determined.

The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and is closed Sundays and Mondays.

For more information on both the museum and the festival, visit their website here.

Pexcho’s American Dime Museum / Augusta, GA

We’ve featured this museum on our blog before (which really is a testament to how highly we recommend it).

Peter “Pexcho” Excho opened up his museum in a former auto parts store in downtown Augusta in June 2019. It is one of the last faithful recreations of the dime museums which reached their peak back between the late 1890s and early 1920s.

Here you’ll find all sorts of wonders, oddities and things to be amazed by like a cyclops fish, the “Sheep Boy”, Abraham Lincoln’s last poo, and a jar of farts reported supplied by Le Petomane, a.k.a. “The Tooting Maniac”, a Parisian flatulist and music hall performer of the late 19th century.

Nature’s oddities and scat exhibits aside, Pexcho’s goal is not only to entertain, but also to educate. Through exhibits like an aquarium of rare, exotic fish, taxidermy displays, and historical photographs, wax figures, and other memorabilia, everyone from 8 to 80 is sure to learn a thing or two during a tour of the museum.

Pexcho’s American Dime Museum is located at 216 6th Street in Augusta. Tours are available by appointment. Call +1 225-448-1453 for more information.

The Augusta Museum of History / Augusta, GA

What do wrestler Hulk Hogan, golfer Bobby Jones, actor Laurence Fishburne, and singer Amy Grant all have in common? Why, of course, they were all born right here in Augusta, Georgia!

You’ll learn all of that and more at the Augusta Museum of History. Founded in 1937 to preserve and share the history of Augusta and the surrounding area, you’ll find quite a few artifacts, images, and dioramas that highlight the broad range of the region’s history.

The two story museum exhibits starts on the first floor with the story of Augusta, its transportation history, and the history of its law enforcement and firefighters. On the second floor you’ll find displays on celebrities born in Augusta, local radio station WBBQ, exhibits honoring local military veterans, and of course there’s even a whole exhibit on the sport of golf which helped make Augusta famous worldwide.

The museum is open Thursday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sunday it’s open 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The museum is closed Monday through Wednesday. For admission fees and more information on one of the finest museums in all of Georgia, you can visit their website here or call +1 706-722-8454.

Honorable Mentions

Speaking of famous Augustans, you we can’t mention Augusta without mentioning James Brown. “The Godfather of Soul” grew up poor in Augusta during the Great Depression and World War II; however, he would later overcome both poverty and segregation and go on to become an international music icon. The city honors James Brown with both a monument and a mural called “The Spirit of Funk” that are worth the visit while you’re in the area. Both will have you feeling good (but you knew that they would now).

Also in Augusta is the Big Cup,  a faux paper cup entrance to a two-story brick building has apparently gone through several name changes ( and including Lily Tulip, Solo, Dart, and today, well, nothing as the building is up for sale. Still, the cup that was strangely never a Dixie Cup remains a great roadside attraction if only for a selfie.

Just south of 4 Points Road on Highway 25 near Waynesboro, you’ll find an old school Kentucky Fried Chicken Bucket sign on a pole. Now, you may be wondering what a Kentucky Fried Chicken Bucket sign is doing on a pole about 5.5 miles from the nearest KFC restaurant. Well, we were, too, and it turns out that sometime around July 25, 2013, the landlord of the property had bought the sign and didn’t have anywhere else to put it. As a result, he just randomly put it here. This makes a good selfie spot, but remember, too, that this is private property, so be respectful.

So, that just about wraps up our tour of the things you can see and do around the Stuckey’s candy plant and retail store in Wrens.

Before we go, however, remember: if you can’t seem to make it to the Stuckey’s plant, they can still send some of that pecany goodness from Wrens right to your front door when you order from our website.
