Guided Tour of Historic 1790 Georgia Plantation Mansion Included in
Moss Oak Plantation Country Crafts and Music Festival on Labor Day Weekend
At the intersection of Highway 34 West and Charlie B. Johnston Roads stands one of Georgia's oldest and most historic buildings: the 1790 Moss Oak Plantation Mansion. This edifice is listed in the U. S. Department of the Interior's National Register of Historic Places. Guided tours of the mansion will be given during Labor Day Weekend (Saturday August 30 through Monday September 1) as part of the Moss Oak Plantation Country Crafts and Music Festival held in the spacious tree-shaded yard in front of the mansion. The Festival is open each day from 9 AM through 6 PM.
Moss Oak Plantation is owned by Dr. James Kornder, a local veterinarian and supporter of cat and dog charities. Some of the proceeds from the annual Moss Oak Festival are donated to cat and dog charities in Coweta County and Heard County. There is no admission charge to attend the Festival but there are fees paid by the arts and crafts vendors who exhibit there.
Information on the Moss Oak Plantation Country Crafts and Music Festival is available by calling 770-583-2555.
