The Clarke County Historical Society is a private non-profit organization founded in 1972.
Our largest program is Pioneer Day, a living history event that draws more than 1200 people to the Museum. At this annual event we have demonstrated syrup making, shingle splitting, clothes washing, butter churning, flint knapping, spinning cotton, basket making. story telling, horse shoeing, salt making, corn shuck doll making, and games for the children. Blue Herron, a Creek Indian, has set up an authentic Creek hunting village on the museum grounds.
This event is free for adults and children and is held the last Saturday in October. See photos from past year’s events: 20082007.
