Vann House Days has been a highlight of the summer since 1978 and the 2013 edition promises to be every bit as exciting. Hosted by the Friends of the Vann House at the State Historic Site in Spring Place, GA, this year’s program will be Saturday, July 27 from 10am until 4pm.

Vann House Days is built around “living history” demonstrations featuring arts and crafts of the 1800’s. Local craftsmen will demonstrate 19th century pottery, weaving, basket making, quilting, spinning, rug making, blacksmithing, blowgun shooting, woodcarving, and much more.

Docents will guide visitors through the Vann mansion, the slave exhibit, and the Cherokee homestead.

The R.E. Chambers Visitor Center will feature a short film and interpretive exhibits on the Vann Family and the Cherokee Nation. Admission to the site is $6 for adults, $5.50 for seniors 62+, and $4 for youth 6-18. Children under six are admitted free. The Vann House is located three miles west of Chatsworth, Georgia at the intersection of GA Highways 52A and 225. For more information call 706-695-2598.
