Plan to visit the New Echota State Historic Site on Saturday, January 28, 2012, 10 am to 4 pm when the Friends of New Echota (FONE) hosts TEACAKES IN THE CABIN in the Cherokee Middle-class Cabin. You’ll enjoy sweet treats, hot beverages, historic demonstrations, and old-fashioned games for the kids. The cabin will be warm and cozy, the site and nature trail will be open for touring, and our 17-minute movie, The Cherokee Nation: The Story of New Echota, will be shown in the theater throughout the day. Come and join us for this special gathering and enjoy the beauty of the winter landscape.
Standard admission fees of $4.50-$6.50 allow access to the Cherokee Middle-class Cabin, museum, film, historic grounds, and nature trail. New Echota State Historic Site attracts almost 10,000 visitors annually, including hundreds of students of all ages from area public and private schools. The site is located one mile east of 1-75, exit 317, on GA Hwy. 225N.
