SAUTEE NACOOCHEE CENTER
The Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia is part of the the Center family and is located on our campus. The award winning structure was funded by Dean and Kay Swanson and houses their outstanding collection of Georgia folk pottery which they gathered with the guidance of collector and folk potter, Michael Crocker. In addition to the core collection the museum hosts special exhibits as well as events and workshops that center on the art of pottery.
FOLK POTTERY MUSEUM OF
This Slave Cabin was constructed around 1850 on a nearby farm, then owned by E. P. Williams. In 2002 it was donated by the present day property owner, Jim Johnston and moved to the Sautee Nacoochee Center campus. It has been carefully restored and furnished with nineteenth century artifacts to be used as a teaching exhibit focusing on local African American life of the period 1822 to 1865. This venue is open on a limited basis for special events. Please check the Center Events calendar for notifications.
AMERICAN HERITAGE SITE
Creativity is alive and well in the North Georgia Mountains. For 33 years, the historic Sautee and Nacoochee Valleys have been home to a vital institution which has nurtured and supported the local community in ways hard to number. The Sautee Nacoochee Center is the face of the Sautee Nacoochee Community Association and offers its programs not only in support of the creative arts but to bind the north Georgia community together in friendship and understanding. One of the strongest community arts programs in the state and the nation, we have earned support from a number of regional and national funders and also generate impressive local support from a community that genuinely values what we bring to their lives. In turn we value the people of these hills and valleys and what they bring to the world. More Information
