Tallassee SCV Camp Proudly Announce Their New Home

The Sons of Confederate Veterans Tallassee Armory Guards now own a new meeting place.  The Historical Society indicates the structure it was built in 1890, however Benjamin Micou who owned the mills during the 1860s and 70s is said to have built it for his overseer.  It was located on the grounds of the Micou mansion which burned in 1908.  The overseerer's house was then moved to the present site which is where the Micou mansion once stood.  It is obvious that it is of 19th century architecture and it may have been constructed during the War Between the States.  The Tallassee camp intends to do more research on it now that it belongs to the camp and they are planning a work day to clean it up with the hopes to start conducting their camp meetings there in June.  Plans also include a flag display and a Confederate Monument at the site.  Congratulations to the Tallassee Armory Guards on this historical treasure.
