History Programs

History Programs Offered by the Funk Heritage Center

To address the mission of telling the story of the early Appalachian Settlers and Southeastern Indians through educational programming and the collection, care and exhibition of art and artifacts, the Funk Heritage Center staff offer many specially planned programs for children and adults throughout the year.  Many are annual events which bring thousands of regular visitors from across north Georgia, as well as other regions, to the Funk Heritage Center.  Others are one-time lectures or workshops which may have a more localized appeal.

The Funk Heritage Center also hosts lectures on interesting topics. In addition it hosts the special programs listed below.  See more by clicking the link on the left:
