Let’s take a photo visit to Georgia’s Native American past. We will meet at the New Echota Historic Site where the Cherokee Nation established its capital in 1825. This historic village, now a Georgia state park, contains 12 original and reconstructed buildings including the Council House, Court House, and Print Shop where the first Indian language newspaper, the Cherokee Phoenix, was printed. There will be opportunities to photograph both outside and inside some of these building, as well as additional homes, outbuildings, corn cribs, and barns.
The park visitor fee is $6.50 (Seniors $6.00).
