Welcome to our Website
The Childersburg Historical Preservation Commission would like to expand participation and utilize new ideas from a wide range of people. The CHPC Board is creating three new subcommittees:
Kymulga Grist Mill and Park
Will meet to discuss projects, needs, fundraisers, etc. for the Mill and Park.
Will meet to discuss projects, needs and fundraiser, etc for the Rainwater Museum.
Will meet to discuss organizing artifacts, pictures, memorabilia of the History of Childersburg.
These committees will meet independently of the CHPC Board and any recommendations will be brought back to the board for approval and funding. This is in the early stages and the scope of the committees are still being organized.
We would like to invite you and others to be a member of one of these committees. As an associate, your ideas and participation will be invaluable to the CHPC Board. Please let me know if you would be interested in being a part of one or several of these committees. Also, please feel free to share with anyone you know that has a love of the history of Childersburg and might be interested in being a part of these committees.

The Butler Harris Rainwater Museum is a Victorian home perched on a hill, overlooking our city.
