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. 

It will also be a meeting whereby officers and directors are elected for 2019-2020.  Please plan to attend.  Being a member is not required

We have some more buildings completed, such as the commissary, shown in this photo.  For more information, please call Missy Elder 478-763-3631.”

Spring Quarterly Meeting

At our April 25 quarterly meeting, we will elect officers and board members during the brief business meeting immediately following our covered dish supper meal. We also are excited about the program, which will be entertaining and interactive! We’ll be sharing specific details in April.

SPS Tour March 26-28

Swainsboro Primary School Second Graders will be coming to tour the museum March 26-28. This is an annual event which we are looking forward to. They will tour each morning, 4 classes at the time. There will be docents telling them about each of the buildings and the lifestyles of people in the 1860s – 1890s. They will get to watch a log building get some chinking added to it and work with a blacksmith in the wheelwright shop.
