Clayton, Ga.—October 2, 2020—The Rabun County Historical Society is asking area residents to donate or loan a moonshining still to its museum in downtown Clayton as part of a wide-ranging effort to expand the museum’s permanent collection.
At one time, Rabun County was the moonshine capital of Georgia. Moonshining also was one of the county’s largest businesses. By displaying a still, the Society will be able to explain the importance of moonshining in the county’s history.
If you donate a still, its value will be tax-deductible, and the Society will provide you with all necessary tax-related forms. Whether you are donating or loaning, your artifact will carry your name on the museum display, if you desire.
Since the museum is currently closed as it undergoes an extensive renovation, please contact the Society with information about your still at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 706-782-5292.
