Our Programs

We are currently looking for the perfect location to house our history and military museum. In the meantime, we are busy creating programs and planning activites that will appeal to a wide range of interests and give-back to our community.

We will be coordinating and collaborating with school systems that want to participate in our educational programs. All schools regardless of where they are located will be invited to the history center so that they can design exhibits and programs that will benefit the children of all ages and backgrounds.

Mentoring programs

  • College business networking program for young women and men-this to help encourage and inspire innovation & creativity.
  • Embrace Being First-building confidence to inspire those who want to be innovators, changemakers & trailblazers. It’s okay to be first and move out of your comfort zone. You may inspire others to do the same.
  • Generational proverty-eliminating the behavior that is a part of ” the scarcity mindset” which traps people in a cycle of insecure thinking and struggle to obtain short-term goals.

Here’s what we have done so far:

Big Canoe Safari Photo Scavenger Hunt

There were sixteen parcipants and they raved about how much fun they had. It gave the residents an opportunity explore historical places inside the gates of Big Canoe and learn about some of the history. Most importantly, they had an opportunity to meet their neighbors. This event was held in September.

The Emma Gatewood Story

NGMHC was a sponsor for this wonderfully entertaining event held at the Eagle Rest Park about the life of Grandma Gatewood, she became famous as the first solo female thru-hiker of the 2,168-mile (3,489 km) Appalachian Trail (A.T.) in 1955 at the age of 67.

Hidden In Plain Sight-Presented by Don Wells

62 people registered for this event. We plan to offer a quarterly informative talk by local historians.
