The Macon County Heritage Center at Cowee School celebrated its official opening Saturday. Formerly known as Cowee Elementary School, the center was open to the public for a chance to see what the future of the old building would be like and organizer Stacy Guffey was impressed by the turnout.
"The turnout exceeded my expectation," he said. "I was especially impressed by how many people were in the school at times. There were moments where you couldn't even move down the hallway."
On the inside, visitors could find a different display or demonstration in every classroom.
