A display of Historic Georgia and Murray County maps will be the theme feature. This is a small, old-fashioned festival, but lots of fun and homemade goodies, with a small-town feel. There will be a new and used book sale, bake sale, concessions, indoor flea market, raffle and auction. The event is co-sponsored by the Spring Place Ruritan Club. Proceeds benefit the Old Spring Place Methodist Church Preservation Fund of the Whitfield-Murray Historical Society. Hard to believe it's that time of year again!
