Passport to Coweta

For the 5th consecutive summer, the Newnan-Coweta History Center presents its “Passport to Coweta” program for kids. This popular program encourages kids to "Catch Nan if you Can!" by visiting historic stops around Coweta County. Nan is a little white Scottish Terrier whose likeness is on signage, the passport, website, etc. The recommended ages for the program are 5 to 12 years old and it runs from May thru end of August.
