Reece Farm inducted into Southern Literary Trail
By Ken Stanford Staff
BLAIRSVILLE - Byron Herbert Reece and the Reece Farm and Heritage Center are now included on the Southern Literary Trail (SLT).
In a unanimous vote by the Trail’s Board of Directors recently, Reece and the center named after him joined the company of other distinguished writers and their respective venues.
The Southern Literary Trail encompasses Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. It is “a project uniting homes of writers and literary landmarks into one tri-state pathway.”
At present, the SLT includes sites in six Georgia cities that are connected to six authors: Lillian Smith in Clayton; Joel Chandler Harris (the Wrens Nest) and the Margaret Mitchell House Museum in Atlanta; Erskine Caldwell in Moreland; Carson McCullers in Columbus; Flannery O’Connor in Savannah and Milledgeville: and Alice Walker in Milledgeville.
The Induction of Byron Herbert Reece and the Reece Farm & Heritage Center
into the Southern Literary Trail will take place between 5:00-6:30 on Sept. 14 on what would have been Reece's 95th birthday.
The site of the ceremony will be at the Byron Herbert Reece Farm and Heritage Center located one mile North of Vogel State Park on US 129 (8552 Gainesville Highway, Blairsville) in Union County.
