Trail of Tears SignWelcome to the Funk Heritage Center

The Funk Heritage Center is a certified National Park Service Trail of Tears interpretive center. Click here to visit the Hall of the Ancients to read more about our Trail of Tears exhibit.

The Funk Heritage Center has received a challenge grant from a foundation and all donations up to $50,000 will be matched $1 for $1. We still need $18,000 before November! 

All funds raised will be used to design and install new exhibits that will include artifacts excavated  in 1995 at the Hickory Log site in Cherokee County. If you can help us reach our goal, please contact Barbara Starr at 770-720-5967 for information.  

We are located at the Reinhardt University campus in Waleska, Georgia.
