Lawrence Dorsey stokes a fire in the hand-laid rock fireplace and chimney.
The cabin is original to the Nacoochee Valley and moved to the Sautee Nacoochee Center campus.
Visit the smithy to learn how implements were made over an open fire.
Traditions of the Appalachian Mountains come alive at the Sautee Nacoochee Center's Heritage Site on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month from 10 AM until 4 PM.
Framed by nineteenth century landscaping and antebellum artifacts, the Heritage Site features two structures. A slave cabin original to the Nacoochee Valley and moved to the SNC campus, along with a blacksmith’s shop built onsite in 2014, tell the region’s history in many ways.
A docent will welcome visitors to the cabin, which provides a focal point for the story of the people whose labor contributed in countless ways to life in Northeast Georgia. A demonstrating blacksmith will be at the smithy, which offers a window into the ways in which functional and decorative tools and implements were created in communities all across the region.
All are invited to stop by to learn about nineteenth and early twentieth century life through demonstration and conversation.
Also on the weekends at the Sautee Nacoochee Center, artists staff the two gallery shops in the Cultural Center. Step into the galleries to view and learn about the local, juried artists whose work is on display and for sale.
