The Georgia Mountain Fair includes a pioneer village.  It features an authentically recreated mountain town of yesterday with a mercantile store, one-roomed school, log cabins, barn, corncrib, and smokehouse.
 
You'll see authentic demonstrations of moonshine stilling, board splitting, black smithing, quilting, singing and picking.
 
Also, the fair provides lots of food.  Fried apple pies. Ice-cold lemonade, cotton candy, apple cider, and ice-cream!  Savor an ice-cream cone under the shade of an oak and enjoy the bluegrass music floating on a breeze across the fairgrounds.

Great Fair --and Fairgrounds --in a gorgeous area, near Hiawassee... There's something for everyone there.

Have you been to Gibbs Gardens --south of Amicalola Falls State Park??? Someone told me about these gardens and they look awesome. We have not been there yet.

Hugs,
Betsy

Homecoming

The Blue Ridge Mountains
unfurl royal blue ribbons,
ancient; carved from granite;
patchwork farms dot the cove.

Cornfields sway like ripples
in the honeysuckle wind,
Queen Anne's lace spins
doilies on the banks

welcoming me to the old homeplace.
Granddaddy's old grey barn
painted with a Lone Star quilt,
a raincrow performs the coda
to a love song.

The gravel road forks,
Hyatt-Mill Creek gurgles
over moss-covered rocks.
A footbridge shimmies,

Great-Granddaddy Dallas Matheson's
log cabin sheltered at the foot
of Shewbird Mountain;
I savor the sweet memories.
