Who are we?

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 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:

Sidney (Sid) Brown: President: 678 850-6506 (mobile phone)

OCCHS is a non-profit organization which depends solely on membership dues, donations and any money received from special events. The operation of the museum and research center depends entirely on volunteers. Your tax deductible contributions are always appreciated!
