Located in downtown McRae is Liberty Square, home of a Statue of Liberty replica that is one-twelfth the original's actual size. There is also a copy of the Liberty Bell and a marble memorial to Telfair County residents who died in service.
On the outskirts of McRae is the Talmadge Home. This historic site was the home of two former Georgia Governors, Eugene Talmadge and Herman Eugene Talmadge. McRae was also the birthplace of Marion B. Folsom (1893–1976), a longtime executive of the Eastman Kodak Company who served as Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare during the administration of President Eisenhower.
