I’m so honored to be part of the William Harris Homestead’s “team”! Dotty and Judy in the above picture are the great-granddaughters of William and Harriet Harris, who moved to this homestead in 1836. Dotty has continued the dream her mother had of restoring and making the Harris Homestead a treasure for everyone to enjoy.
Each week in the spring and fall, hundreds of school children come out for “A Day in the 19th Century”, and learn about the homestead, the family, Georgia history, the Civil War, and cotton.
I will be helping Dotty with the indoor life, cooking, and cotton portion of the program. I’m SO excited! There’s a lot to learn, but when you have a chance to learn more about something you love, it’s not hard! 🙂
The William Harris Homestead was featured on WSB-TV (Atlanta) as one of Georgia’s Hidden Treasures. Be sure to watch, and if you’re in the area, come on out for a visit. The homestead is open to the public the first and third Saturdays each month.
