Join us at the Bartow History Museum on October 20, 2021 at noon for a presentation by Rachel McLucas, the Curator of Oak Hill and the Martha Berry Museum at Berry College. McLucas will discuss the impact that the Berry Schools have had on education in Northwest Georgia. Specifically, attendees will learn about Martha Berry’s life and how her chance encounter with local children would ignite a passion for educating the youth of rural Appalachia and the development of the Berry Schools, which ultimately allowed Berry College to emerge out of Sunday School in a small cabin within 40 years’ time. This is an in-person lecture at the Bartow History Museum. Tickets are required. Tickets are free for members and $7.00 for non-members.
