Society celebrates 30 years of preserving history


The name Campbell County has been around since 1828.

Even though the county became part of Fulton County in 1932, the name is perpetuated through the Old Campbell County Historical Society.

Founded in 1970, the society continues to preserve history and artifacts concerning the county, which was formed from parts of Fayette, DeKalb, Carroll and Coweta counties.

The group's recent Christmas luncheon celebrated its 30 years of existence, with Dot Lassiter recounting its accomplishments, which include refurbishing the 1871 Old Campbell County Courthouse. The society also houses a research center and museum.

Fulton County has given the use of the courthouse to the society and named the group as curator.

The society meets each third Sunday at 3 p.m. For information, phone Lassiter, 770-964-6007.
