Meet March 12th to help save log home

Trail of Tears Assn GA banner

You can help save an historic log home in Gordon County that is on the National Register….

The next meeting of the Georgia Chapter of the Trail of Tears Association will be held at Rockdale Plantation in Gordon County, GA on Saturday, March 12, 2011 at 10:30 AM. This antebellum showplace, listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Major Freeman-Hurt House, was in extremely poor condition when owners Kerry and Sue Hix bought it at auction three decades ago. They refer to the now mostly restored log structure as “the oldest home in Gordon County.” Please come to our meeting on March 12th and learn more about the history of the Rockdale Plantation and the projects currently being worked on by the Trail of Tears Association. Our meetings are free and open to the public. You need not have Native American ancestry, just an interest and desire to learn more about this fascinating and tragic event.
