Folk music draws big crowd for January meeting
The old courthouse rang out with historical folk music when Kathy Reed brought her informative and educational program to Fairburn, Georgia. Many thanks to Kathy and to the many members and visitors who almost filled our meeting room.

The Old Campbell County Historical Society (OCCHS) invites you to help us preserve the history of our community. If you live in the area that was once Campbell County, the history is a part of the place where you reside. And you are now a part of tomorrow's history. We invite you to help us preserve the facts and artifacts of the past.
OCCHS was formed in 1970 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the historic Campbell County Courthouse and the documents, images, artifacts, and information that are part of our county. The Courthouse in Fairburn is now the home of this society and houses the OCCHS museum which tells the story of Campbell County.
OCCHS has a Research Room in the Campbell County Courthouse which is staffed by volunteers. The museum and research room are open on Tuesdays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. or by appointment. For more information about using the research facility or viewing the museum, please contact:
