On Saturday, Aug. 16, organizers, volunteers, vendors, and visitors alike all gathered together at the Cowee Heritage Center to celebrate the second year of operations for the facility.
Located off Highway 28 in the Cowee West Mill District of Macon County, people flocked to the old Cowee School that now houses the heritage center.
According to Stacey Guffey, a key organizer of the project, the second annual celebration has been deemed a success based on early figures.
“I would say that the turnout was as good as it was last year,” he said following the event. “Though we don't have an official head count, I would estimate that there was probably somewhere between 300 to 400 people that attended.”
