NEGAHC Hosts French and Indian War and ‘The Ghosts of Gruhn Field’ Programs

Northeast Georgia History Center LogoThe Northeast Georgia History Center will host two events next week with “Family Day: The French and Indian War” on Sunday, Feb. 12, and “Forum: The Ghosts of Bobby Gruhn Field” on Tuesday, Feb. 14.

Sunday’s “Family Day: The French and Indian War” will include living history, museum theater and hands-on activities that will bring to life the conflict that won an empire for Britain and put America on the path to Revolution. Family Days are held on the second Sunday of each month through April from 1-4 p.m. and are free and open to the public.

At Tuesday’s forum, Gainesville native Sammy Smith will present some stories from his new book of sports-related heroism and achievement of the past. The Ghosts of Bobby Gruhn Field is a nostalgic collection of stories tied to City Park and the famed football stadium throughout the Gainesville High School years. Its editor, Sammy Smith, compiled stories from writers such as Phil Jackson, Johnny Vardeman, Heyward Gnann, Phil Hudgins and much more. History Center Forums are held the second Tuesday of each month through June. The forum will begin at 7 p.m. Admission is free for members and is $3 for nonmembers.
