Spring Place Community Festival: August 16, 2014

Historic Spring Place community, near Chatsworth, Georgia... Time again for Spring Place Community Festival: Saturday, August 16th, beginning at 8 a.m. at the Old Spring Place Methodist Church. "Spring Place: From Moravians to You" is the theme of this 17th annual event.

This old-fashioned festival starts early and everything's over by mid-to-late afternoon. It's small and quaint, but you can pick up some bargain books, homemade treats, and thrift items that you might not find elsewhere. Festival features are: a new and used book sale, food concessions, a bake sale, an indoor and outdoor flea market, a raffle, and other activities. For history buffs, Whitfield-Murray Historical Society will sell books on local history and genealogy. Local author Faye Junkins Gibbons will sign copies of her new novel, Halley.
Auction, 10 a.m.: paintings, prints, book sets, antiques, rugs, gift cards.

Special Display: historic Family Bibles from area residents. 

Auction items are donated by local businesses. Festival proceeds benefit the Old Spring Place Methodist Church Preservation Fund of the Whitfield-Murray Historical Society. Co-Sponsor: Spring Place Ruritan Club. For more information contact 706-695-2740 or 706-695-2110.

Map & Directions:

Located just South of  Chief Vann House State Historic Site (82 Georgia 225/intersect 52-Alt East). I have to trick Google a bit for GPS, but this should do it: 2700 Spring Place-Smyrna Road, Chatsworth, Georgia. From Chief Vann House, take Georgia 225 South about 1/2 mile, then bear left on S.P.-Smyrna Rd. The church is across from the Dollar General Store.
