Northeast Georgia’s SNC History Museum

The Sautee Nacoochee Center, just a few minutes from the Inn, is home to the SNC History Museum, a treasure trove of information and artifacts that define our area.folk-art-memorabilia

The center takes its name from the Nacoochee and Sautee Valleys, which include the mountainous region surrounding the Inn, and encompass a rich and notable past. The SNC History Museum does a terrific job of bringing together the stories of how the valleys developed, the inhabitants who lived here and the importance of both to forming the place we call home.

Visitors can easily spend several hours here perusing the wealth of maps, interesting articles, and wonderful old photographs that chart the geographic, economic, cultural, and environmental influences that define Sautee Nacoochee. Included in this compilation is a comprehensive collection of historic letters and photos, interesting insights into life in former times. Also on display are numerous authentic artifacts that allow visitors to get a hands-on feeling for everyday life and work way back when.

The History Museum is part of the Sautee Nacoochee Center, a mainstay in our community that promotes local culture, including the Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia. Be sure to stop in here as well to learn about the folk pottery history of the area. It’s one of the few museums in the world to focus exclusively on folk pottery.
