Passport Coweta County
Explore local history and "register" adventure with NCHS' 2021 summer Passport to Coweta County program.
This year, explore local historical places of national significance! Most locations on the 2021 Passport to Coweta County are either State Parks or places listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Learn about about what makes each of these places so special to our county and "register" your own adventure this summer!
Start your in-person journey at the McRitchie-Hollis Museum where you can pick up a passport booklet for a $5 donation (active Newnan-Coweta Historical Society members receive a free booklet). Or complete the tour for free by visiting www.passportcoweta.com, visiting each location listed, and uploading photos of your visit to the Google form. Each visit earns you a stamp. Adventurers that complete the passport by the end of the summer can exchange their "stamps" at the McRitchie-Hollis Museum for a congratulatory prize!
The Newnan-Coweta Historical Society has been presenting the Passport to Coweta County since 2019. Passport to Coweta County is an outdoor exhibit that encourages families to explore different locations, areas, and experiences throughout Newnan and the surrounding Coweta County area.
About our 2021 sponsor Hillcrest Chapel: The Willcoxon-Arnold House, c. 1852, is a brick Greek Revival house that currently houses Hillcrest Chapel. In 1953, the home was turned into a funeral home which has been its use ever since. Hillcrest Chapel was nominated for a 1991 Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation Award. On May 20, 1991 the Willcoxon-Arnold House was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Hillcrest Chapel has been continuously serving the community for 60 plus years. The Hillcrest Chapel owners and staff are proud to not only carry on this tradition of excellence in funeral service, but also preserve this historic structure for future generations.
