Held in Trust


Georgia's history is diverse and rich with stories of triumph and tragedy. From Native American burial mounds to plantations to civil war fortifications, physical remnants of this past have been left behind in the form of buildings and structures. Many of these locations are preserved and open to the public.

On this episode, we'll trace Georgia's history through its historic sites and see how the staff at these locations work to make history come alive.

We join a torchlight tour of the Etowah Mounds near Cartersville, and find out about syrup making at the Jerrell Plantation. Finally, we'll see how archaeologists are continually digging up new elements of Georgia's history and feature the restoration of Hardman Farm, a historic dairy farm in Helen.
