Wonderful Wednesdays for Grandparents - July, 2018

Each Wednesday during the month of July, the Funk Heritage Center of Reinhardt University will offer free admission for grandchildren when accompanied by a paying grandparent. This is a “cool” way to entertain and enjoy your grandchildren this summer.  Children will especially enjoy our Native American exhibits in the Hall of the Ancients. For more information, call 770-720-5970 or visit    

 Life Along the Etowah and History Beneath Our Feet Exhibits

Visit the Hall of the Ancients and see exhibits that include artifacts from the 1995 Cherokee County Hickory Log excavation site. Many artifacts date prior to the Cherokee removal in 1838. Also, some items from the Mississippian, Woodland and Archaic periods of time are on display. The exhibits would not be possible without donations from our members, volunteers and the community. A third exhibit about Cherokee life is planned to open in 2018.
