  • Sautee Nacoochee Center


The Sautee Nacoochee Community Association maintains the Sautee Nacoochee Center, a thriving cultural and community center housed in a restored rural schoolhouse. The center includes a folk pottery museum, theatre, gallery, art studio, dance studio, history museum, heritage site, nature preserve, environmental studies room, and conference facilities.

One exhibit within the museum highlights a local connection to the Civil War. In response to Governor Joseph Brown's request, blacksmith Edwin Williams set to work on Sautee Creek manufacturing pikes, a stop-gap weapon consisting of a long wooden staff with a bayonet attached. Stored in warehouses in Augusta and Charleston, many were sent home by Federal occupiers as unique souvenirs. Joe Brown pikes are prized exhibits in Georgia's Confederate museums.
