BLUE RIDGE, Ga. – According to Branch Librarian Andrew Vickers, the Fannin County Public Library is hosting a History Night at the library on West First Street in downtown Blue Ridge Monday, May 21, at 4 p.m.
Library patrons and history enthusiasts attending the event can bring small family heirlooms, family photographs and, of course, stories to the history event. Light refreshments will also be served as local residents share and learn about the county’s history with others.
Lirbary assistant Vanessa Pittman and Sophia Queen will be leading the discussion during the event. Queen, a local college student seeking her master’s degree, recently created a website, http://rememberingfannin.com/, for a school genealogy and local history project. She hopes to collect further stories, pictures and photos from residents in an attempt to preserve these and show how Fannin County has changed over the years.
