Welcome to the Historic Cowee School Macon County Heritage Center! Built in 1943 on the site of a Civilian Conservation Corps camp, the Cowee School served thousands of students until it was closed as a school in 2012. It continues as an institution of learning. In 2013, a board of directors was formed to guide the school in a new direction. To date we have successfully offered an annual concert series and classes in a variety heritage arts & crafts in an attempt to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of the Cowee Valley and the region as a whole. Visit the website for a complete schedule of classes, concerts, and special events.
Join the jam every the 3rd Saturday of each month, all year long!
