Spring 2019 Quarterly Meeting

“The Emanuel County Historic Society will host its annual meeting Thursday April 25th at the Longview Farm and Home Museum. 

The gates will open at 5:00 PM for tours and the covered dish dinner will begin at 7:00 PM. 

Amanda and Brandon Bell will present some old gospel and other songs and give us the history on them. This should be a very interesting program, a twist to our presenting history of the county.
