We are currently in negotiations to lease a building to house our history center 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 any school system that wants 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.
The History & Military Center will be EXCEPTIONAL, SPECTACULAR, AND INSPIRATIONAL!

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.
Downtown Jasper Historical Mural
The creation of the historical mural is in the process and expected to be completed by early 2024. This is a collaboration between Pickens Arts & Cultural Alliance and North GA Mountains History Center. Stay tuned!
