Not only will the re-established orchard add a significant visual element to the historic interpretation of New Echota, it will also provide a unique educational perspective for the many children and adults who visit New Echota State Historic Site every year.
Any organization or individual wishing to help with the expense of the project is asked to make a monetary donation to Friends of New Echota, 1211 Chatsworth Hwy 225N, Calhoun, GA 30701. By doing so, the donor’s name will be included on signage that will be placed at the site to commemorate the historic 50th anniversary of New Echota as a State Historic Site and the donor’s participation as a valued supporter of New Echota.
