Jump on the gem mine caravan tour

Following a gem mine introductory presentation, tour-goers will get in their own vehicles and caravan to historic mines in the Cowee and Burningtown areas. The gem industry has played an influential role in Macon County’s past, though it has declined in recent decades. 

$5 per vehicle donation requested. Carpooling encouraged. Meet at the Historic Cowee School, a.k.a. Macon Heritage Center. Hosted by Friends of the Rickman Store. 828.349.7476 or 828.371.7689.
