In celebration of National Grandparents Day, the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center invites people to step back in time and discover their family’s history.

The event will be a the perfect time to bring grandparents for homemade ice cream and exploration of the 1930s heritage farm at the “Back When I Was A Kid ...” program from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 8, at the McDaniel Heritage Farm.

“This is a special program for families, especially grandparents and grandchildren. Visitors can enjoy a tour of McDaniel Farm and learn about the type of fun their grandparents experienced as kids,” said Catherine Long, GEHC history and culture program manager.

Participants will have the opportunity to examine tools and technology from Gwinnett’s early farming days, spend time eating homemade ice cream, make a family scrapbook and listen to stories of life when their grandparents were kids.

The program is designed to be a fun walk back through time for grandparents, and an educational experience for grandchildren and the entire family. Admission is $5 per person; children ages 3 and younger are free.

Guests can preregister online at or by calling 770-904-3500.

McDaniel Farm is located at 3251 McDaniel Road, Duluth.
