“Passport to Coweta County” Summer Program

June 3, 2021

For the third consecutive year, Newnan-Coweta Historical Society (NCHS) is pleased to announce its summer program—“Passport to Coweta County” with a fun new theme.

Passport to Coweta County is an outdoor exhibit that encourages families to explore different locations, areas, and experiences throughout Newnan and the surrounding Coweta County area. Families are invited to visit historical sites by visiting locations of national significance. 

Most of the locations are state parks or places listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Learn what makes each of these places so special to our county.  

Participating families start their journey at the McRitchie-Hollis museum where they can pick up their passport booklet for a $5 donation (active Newnan-Coweta Historical Society members receive a free booklet) or complete the tour for free by visiting

Adventurers that complete the passport by the end of the summer can exchange their "stamps" at the McRitchie-Hollis Museum for a congratulatory prize!
