Past Front Porch Interviews
Several of the interviews with local residents collected on The Front Porch at past Franklin Folk Festivals were shared at the Macon County Public Library in the Spring of 2015. The response was very positive and several of the people interviewed were there to share in the fun! The Folk Heritage Association of Macon County hopes to be able to offer more of these at the Library in the Fall. The schedule will be posted.
On August 15, 2015 past interviews were shown at the Heritage Celebration at Cowee School. And new interviews were collected by Betty Cabe and Ralph Preston that day.
