This past weekend, we had so much fun visiting the Mountain Heritage Festival in Blairsville, GA. This is a wonderful festival that not only has beautifully hand-crafted arts and crafts from the crafters in the area, but also offers living history activities and demonstrations for all ages!
While at the festival, the boys were able to check out the 1906 Butt-Mock Home that was donated to the Historical Society on 1994 has been fully restored.As well as the 1861 John Payne Cabin.
Local artist fill the front yard of the Butt-Mock home to showcase all their beautiful work.
In the back of the home, is where you’ll find the John Payne Cabin and an array of activities for all ages. It’s filled with living history activities and demonstrations, as well as music.
We enjoyed learning more about the Civil War.
Panning For Gold
Not only watching a black smith demonstration, but learning about it as well.
They also had a small petting zoo area so that the kids could check out an array of animals from pigs, rabbits, and goats.
We even enjoyed a game of checkers…
