Folk Heritage Association founder named honorary historian of Macon County
“You just can’t trust these folks,” said a smiling Margaret Ramsey on Saturday after the suprise announcement that she had been named Honorary Historian for Macon County. “They got me,” she said.
In fact, it was more than a month ago that the county board of commissioners voted to bestow the title on Ramsey, one of the original founders of the Franklin Folk Festival which celebrated its eigth consecutive year last weekend. But despite the long delay, family, friends and colleagues all managed to keep the citation a secret.
