Welcome to the Funk Heritage Center
New Exhibits Opening in September 30 2016
Two new permanent exhibits will open to the public on September 30. "History Beneath Our Feet" and "Life Along the Etowah" will be installed in the Hall of the Ancients. Thanks to everyone who donated funds to have artifacts from the Cherokee County Hickory Log excavation site curated and preserved at the UGA Archaeology Laboratory. Also, thanks those who donated last year to match a challenge grant we received. The new exhibits would not be possible without your help. A third exhibit about Cherokee life is planned to open in 2018.
