Georgia History Timeline
The 8th annual Georgia History Timeline was a great success. Students of all ages enjoyed
Abraham Lincoln as well as all of the other professional re-enactors who
appear each October at this one-of-a-kind living history program. This
unique program allows students to learn through "living history"
as they visit re-enactors who portray historical characters. Students step back in time when they cross a bridge into the Appalachian
Settlement located behind the Heritage Center.
Many teachers begin making reservations in January for the October event. By making reservations as early as possible, teachers may select
the best day and time for their class to attend. The admission for the 2
hour program is $12 for students and adults. One adult per 20 students
is free with a minimum of 20 students. This is a rain or shine event.
Picnic tables are available near the bus driveway. For additional
information or to make reservations, call 770-720-5970.
Above: When students leave the Pioneer Settlement, they will stop by to visit Abraham Lincoln. They will then walk back to the Heritage Center picnic area following the event.
