The Pickens County Museum recently received a loan of a rare historical artifact to display in our Native American exhibit area. Pickens native Tom Bowen loaned the Museum an item called a ceremonial spatulate amulet which was worn during sacred Cherokee ceremonies. Mr. Bowen was given the amulet by his father-in-law many years ago and through research and consultation, this artifact has been authenticated as a Cherokee artifact that dates to the pre-historic era. This exciting new artifact will be on display here at the museum beginning this week. Come by and read the amazing story of how Tom Bowen’s father-in-law acquired the artifact and see the amulet for yourself.

Our second set of passengers have just boarded the Titanic! This morning during our first Homeschool session, students had fun learning about life aboard the Titanic and attempted to make their own unsinkable ship.

Due to the success of these monthly events, we began offering an afternoon session this month so that more students could enjoy the lessons. Our next Homeschool Day will take place on Thursday, May 23. The theme will be Trains & Railroads. Registration is open now!
