For over thirty years the Okefenokee Heritage Center has sought to illustrate the history of the Okefenokee region and act as a venue for the artistic talent of the people who live here. The OHC has worked to refine and clarify the information found in its exhibits. One dynamic aspect about history is that it is always being made, so our story also grows.
