For a day in the North Georgia mountains on Saturday June 3rd, 2017. We will be heading to the Dillard, Georgia, area to tour the Foxfire Museum, rock on the front porch at Latimer Lodge, eat BBQ, and tour a working grist mill.
Leave the church at 8am and travel to the Foxfire Museum (98 FoxFire Lane Mountain City, Ga. 30562) for a group tour that costs just under $8 from 10am-2pm
Arrive at 12:15 pm at Latimer Lodge (4176 Betty’s Creek Road Rabun Gap, Ga. 30568) *. The cabin phone number is 706-746-6975. We will have a BBQ plate from Mountain Man BBQ for about $5/plate. Afterwards we will sit around and visit on the porch, walk or drive to a working gristmill about 300 yards away, and check out this 100-year-old mountain cabin. This is a rustic, no frills cabin, so please dress comfortably! It should be a relaxed time of catching up with old friends and making new
Around 5pm we will head down the mountain towards Watkinsville, and arrive at the church around 7pm, before dark.
- CASH for the tour and meal, approximate total of $13.00/person
