The Friends of the Rickman Store are inviting the community to a special and unique presentation by Charles Coburn from the Scottish Tartans Museum on Saturday, Aug. 29, at 11 a.m. at the historic Rickman Store. Refreshments and musical entertainment will follow the presentation.
Continuing with the series on Secrets Gems in Cowee as part of the 90th Anniversary of the store, the Friends of the Rickman Store are sharing with visitors the many gifts and talents of members of the community. This time “Chuck” Coburn will share stories and answer the frequently asked questions, “How did the Scots come to North Carolina?” “Why do we have a Scottish Museum in Franklin? Are there really many folks here of Scottish descendants?”
