The Cowee School that is located just off of Highway 28 in the Cowee West Mill District of Macon County no longer houses the laughter of children and the lessons of elementary school teachers, but that does not mean that others won't be benefitting from its place in the community for years to come. A celebration planned for this Saturday will kick off the school's new role for the future as a cultural and community center for residents of the Cowee area and Macon tours of Cowee West's Mill Historic District. Vehicles may park at Cowee Baptist Church and Snow Hill Methodist Church where there will be a complimentary shuttle to take visitors back and forth. Balsam Range will perform at 7 p.m. and a dinner will be prepared by Chef Lindsay Kent of the Cottage. The 200 tickets that were available for the dinner have sold out.
