Highway 27 Stories Coming to Town!

cover in color(Franklin) — The Heard County Historical Society is pleased to announce that their newest book, Highway 27  Stories, has been printed and is route to Franklin Georgia. It is scheduled to arrive on the afternoon of December 23rd.

The book is a compilation of stories – from tragedies to comedies, historic to whimsical – about life along Highway 27 from the Carroll County line to the Troup County line.

Society member Rebecca Davis Lawley has been collecting stories and memories from local citizens for several years and the book committee has spent this past year putting the book together.

The book will be $26.00 if picked up at the Museum or $26.00 plus postage if mailed.  We are excited about this book and have a special offer to our patrons.

The first 75 people to buy a copy of Highway 27 Stories will get a free copy of the Chattahoochee River Stories book or a CD containing an 1863 map of Georgia.

Books will be available for purchase on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Museum in the old jail building in downtown Franklin.  The Museum will be closed on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve but someone will be there on Friday December 27th from 1 to 4 and on Saturday December 28th from 10 to 12 selling books.

You may call the museum at 706-675-6507 to reserve your copy.

    Trying to find a copy of this book as I missed this article way back when and every time I call, it is sold out. Any chances of it being reprinted? Or anyone with a copy they have read and would not like to sell?
