As the national health situation around COVID-19 continues to develop, the History Center is keeping an eye on developments. To continue contributing to the overall efforts as recommended and defined in Centers for Disease Control guidelines, we will remain closed to the public through Thursday, April 30. At that time we will re-evaluate the situation and make a decision about further actions.

However, we will continue to provide on-line content and daily LIVE educational programming, so please take advantage of the wonderful daily learning opportunities via the Cottrell Digital Studio. Follow us on Facebook at‚Äčnegahc or visit our website at to check out our broadcast schedule and how to access the streaming content.


The Northeast Georgia History Center has exhibits and historic structures that span over 11,000 years of the region's history. During your visit you'll tour an 18th century cabin once home to Cherokee tribal leader White Path, experience hands-on history through our kid-friendly interactive exhibits, learn little-known stories of the region's past, and get up close to hundreds of artifacts. We can't wait to share this wonderful region's history with you!
