Families near and far may have celebrated Independence Day Wednesday, but on Sunday, the Northeast Georgia History Center will give background on the local impact of the war that garnered our freedom.
This month’s Family Day will be centered around “The Revolutionary War in Northeast Georgia.”
The event will take place from 1-4 p.m. Sunday at the center, 322 Academy St. NE in Gainesville.
As usual, there’s no admission fee on Family Day.
In addition to interesting exhibits, attendees can also get “first hand” accounts from historic re-enactors.
There will also be a variety of family-friendly activities, including signing up for the Georgia militia and learning how to train using 18th century methods.
The history center is located on the Brenau University campus. The center’s vision is to be a “leading resource for promoting a greater understanding of the cultural, social, economic and political history of the region.”
The center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturday. Regular admission fees are $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for students. History center members and children ages 5 and younger receive free admission.
