New England heads South

The Blue Willow Inn in Social Circle is known for its upscale Southern fare, but it takes on a decidedly old school New England accent this month with an exhibit on the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving.

The display is open at no cost in the village behind the inn from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily through Nov. 28 at the restaurant, 294 N. Cherokee Road (Georgia Highway 11 north of downtown).

The event features authentic replicas of life in 1600s New England, including farming tools and utensils, brooms and weaponry including a musket and saber. A costumed interpreter will be on hand to answer questions, too.

This is the fifth year the display has been offered by the Blue Willow, according to the owner, Louis Van Dyke.

"The people who have come by really enjoy it," he said.
