Newnan-Coweta Historical Society

The Newnan-Coweta Historical Society (NCHS) is dedicated to preserving and honoring the history of Newnan and Coweta County through exhibits at the McRitchie-Hollis Museum and the Newnan Historic Train Depot.

Over the years, Newnan-Coweta Historical Society and the McRitchie-Hollis Museum have sought to bring educational and interactive programming to the community. We believe that museums can be exciting places for people of every age and background to enjoy.

NCHS continues to develop ever-changing exhibits to tell the story of Newnan and Coweta County and the West Georgia Region at our McRitchie-Hollis Museum and the Historic Newnan Train Depot.
