The Sautee Nacoochee Center (SNC) is pleased to announce the opportunity for learning through interaction with historic interpreters. Beginning November 9, 2019, traditions of the Appalachian Mountains will be alive at the Heritage Site, which is located on the 8.5 acre SNC campus.
Framed by nineteenth century landscaping and antebellum artifacts, the Heritage Site features two structures that will be brought to life on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month. A slave cabin original to the Nacoochee Valley and moved to the SNC campus, along with a blacksmith's shop built onsite in 2014, tell the region's history in many ways.
A docent will welcome visitors to the cabin, which provides a focal point for the story of the people whose labor contributed in countless ways to life in Northeast Georgia. A demonstrating blacksmith will be at the smithy, which offers a window into the ways in which functional and decorative tools and implements were created in communities all across the region.
The Heritage Site will be staffed and welcoming visitors on the second and fourth Saturdays from 10 AM until 4 PM beginning in November. All are invited to stop by to learn about nineteenth and early twentieth century life through demonstration and conversation.
