The Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home will host a workday on Saturday to introduce the public to the gardens on the museum campus, 501 Riverside Parkway in Rome.  The event will begin at 9:30 am.

According to a release from Chieftains, under the guidance of the Floyd County Master Gardeners, volunteers will learn more about the Major Ridge Demonstration Garden, the Three Sisters Garden and other landscape features around the campus as they help prepare the campus for Fall.

No experience is necessary to volunteer for the work day event, you just need an interest in learning about the museum and its gardens and the willingness to lend a hand to keep the campus maintained for visitors to descend upon the museum in the coming months.

Volunteers are encouraged to bring work gloves and garden tools to the work day event.  For more information, contact the museum at (706) 291-9494 or visit

The Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home is a National Historic Landmark and one of only a few private entities to be certified by the National Park Service as a site on the Trail of Tears.
