The Carmichael House
The SAHS most valuable artifacts and collections are stored and displayed in the Carmichael House, a Gothic Revival style home built in the 1870s and located at 6 Couch Street in Senoia. The SAHS purchased the home and property in 1990 for the purpose of creating a museum, offices and meeting place for the society. Maintenance of the home and property is an integral part of our mission and a responsibility of the society.
The Carmichael House is old and in need of repair, and we are responsible. The Board has prioritized these needs based on urgency & cost and has approved repair work for the exterior structure of the building. The structural concerns are critical and must be addressed now.
However, SAHS maintains only one year’s operating expenses on hand. “Extra” funds are not available for capital projects & therefore, must be raised separately. The difference between funds raised & project cost will need to be financed. Thus the need for the Carmichael Initiative.
We need your help to raise money in order to minimize the amount of money borrowed.
