What’s a Canning Plant? A Look at the History of Community Canning by Board member Sharon Thomason, local resident, realtor, and author, will present a program entitled, “Plants since the 1930s.” One of her earliest memories is of playing in a closed canning plant in the 1950s in Sweet Water, Alabama.

Dahlonega’s cannery is next door to the Historical Society’s 1884 Jail Museum. It was built so that canning equipment could be shared by the women of Dahlonega to preserve the fruits and vegetables of their harvest.
