History Center Hosts Family Day Sunday, March 12 and Forum Tuesday, March 14

The Northeast Georgia History Center will present two events in the next week: Family Day on Sunday, March 12, and a forum on Tuesday, March 14.

Family Day’s theme will be “From Plow to Plate: Mountain Food Ways.” It will run from 1-4 p.m. on March 12 and will include cooking in the cabin, planting in the garden and sharing traditional recipes for attendees to try at home, as the History Center celebrates the planting season with hands-on activities, living history interpretation and demonstrations. Family Days will be held through April on the second Sunday of each month and are free and open to the public.

The forum on “Rural Churches of Georgia” will begin at 7 p.m. on March 14 at the History Center. Dr. George Hart will be on hand to share a statewide effort to research, record and, if possible, preserve the remaining historic rural churches of Georgia. The effort is noncommercial and is made up of a small group of volunteers dedicated to the preservation of our past and the dissemination of as much knowledge as possible.

Hart’s book will also be available for sale in the Museum Shop. Northeast Georgia History Center forums are held through June on the second Tuesday of each month. Admissions is free for members and $3 for nonmembers. For more information, call 770.297.5900, visit negahc.org or email ude.uanerb@retnecyrotsih.
