Chattahoochee Indian Heritage Center
The center celebrates the culture and accomplishments of the Native Americans who inhabited the Chattahoochee River Valley until their removal west in the 1830s. The center's memorial is a symbolic representation of a Creek central plaza, consisting of four arbors surrounding the Sacred Fire, a 25-foot flame sculpture made of stainless steel and bronze. Around the symbolic square ground are plaques listing the names of Indian heads of households who were shown on the Creek Census of 1832, just prior to their removal to Oklahoma. A large playing field south of the memorial honors stickball, a game that was a major part of Southeastern Native American culture. An annual Southern Indian Homecoming is held at the center. Call for dates and times.
