On Sunday, April 9, Family Day at the Northeast Georgia History Center commemorates the centennial anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I, or “The Great War,” with a living history interpretation and hands-on activities.
Over There: America Enters World War I is presented by the generous support of the Ada Mae Ivester Education Center and in partnership with local business, Yarn Rhapsody, which will do an authentic 1917 “sock-drive” activity.
The event begins at 1 p.m. at the history center, 322 Academy St. NE, in Gainesville. Admission is free.
Then on Tuesday, April 11, the center will hold a forum on the “Cabins of Northeast Georgia,” with a fascinating presentation on the history and architecture of Georgia cabins.
The History Center is the home of the historic White Path Cabin, a circa 1780 Cherokee home.
The forum will be held in the Ada Mae Ivester Education Center at the History Center. The forum begins at 7 p.m. and is free for members or $3 for nonmembers.
