“The CCHHS is located in the Bradley and McMinn County area, but it is for all citizens young and old to learn about the rich history in our area along the Hiwassee River,” wrote Duggan. The donation made will be used to help with the current sidewalk projects in Charleston and the new addition to the Charleston/Calhoun Hiwassee Historical Society’s building. To complete the building CCHHS will be raising an additional $50,000.
