If you love poking around historical buildings and sites, mark your calendar for Super Museum Sunday 2018!
The Georgia Historical Society has coordinated a number of historic and cultural sites throughout Georgia and those sites will offer FREE admission on Sunday, February 11th! Head to the Super Museum Sunday site to see all the locations participating.
Even better, ALL state historic sites managed by the Georgia State Parks system will be open, even if they are not normally open on a Sunday!
You know we love our state and national parks. Take this opportunity to check out some really cool ones with your family! On our road trip down the Georgia Coast this past February, we stopped in at Fort King George, the oldest English fort remaining on Georgia’s coast.
Close by, Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation is a beautiful stop. Dating from the early 1800’s, this rice plantation turned dairy farm offers gorgeous views and several historic buildings.
If you need something closer to Atlanta, check out the Etowah Indian Mounds in Cartersville or Pickett’s Mill Battlefield in Dallas! If you are interested in Native American history, don’t stop at the Etowah Indian Mounds. Make a day of touring and head up to see Chief Vann House in Chatsworth!
Chief Vann House is designated Georgia’s best preserved Cherokee Indian home. Completed in 1804, the Vann family were important Cherokee leaders until the majority of the Cherokee Nation was forced to flee west on the Trail of Tears. Learn more about the colorful history of this house’s inhabitants!
A list of all the Georgia State Historic Sites can be found on the Georgia State Parks website.
Take advantage of this fun FREE day perfect for families! If history isn’t your thing, there are also sites such as home museums, art museums and other points of interest.
